This kit is a time-saving choice for your homeschool! It contains everything for the four optional dissection labs in Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology, including a 15-piece advanced dissecting tool set, dissecting pan, frog dissection guide, and four preserved specimens (frog, perch, crayfish, and earthworm). The kit includes all four specimens packaged separately. Our kit order form lists all of the items in this kit.
You can order this kit now even if you will be doing the dissections later in the year. This kit also goes well with the Bob Jones HomeSat biology course. If you're not using this kit with Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology curriculum, you'll need to order the perch, crayfish, and worm dissection guides, which are part of the curriculum, separately. This kit includes only the frog dissection guide.
Note: Specimens are initially preserved with a formaldehyde solution, the best animal tissue fixative. The formaldehyde is then displaced first with water and finally with a glycol solution to produce a moist, low-fume specimen which will not decay over time. Plan to use specimens within one year of purchase to ensure the best tissue quality. Specimen discoloration and dryness over time is normal and does not indicate decay.
Store your specimens at normal room temperature—refrigeration is not required. Storage in attics or garages at high temperatures will damage the specimens. Once opened, specimens can be resealed in a zip-lock bag to prevent them from drying out for later use.
Shipping Note: This item contains preserved specimens and only ships to a street address in the 50 US states.
