Help students get the most out of their microscope labs with this Apologia Biology Microscope Kit! This kit comes with microscope slides and other items needed for the microscope portion of Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology course, 3rd edition.

To make your science experiences more impactful and affordable, we provide an Ascaris (roundworm) slide instead of the more expensive whitefish blastodisc one. Both show animal mitosis, but the Ascaris slide actually shows the stages more clearly!

This kit provides the materials for an essential part of Apologia's Biology course. For an even more well-rounded Apologia biology lab experience, pair this kit with the Dissection Kit for Apologia Biology.

If you are ordering this kit, you do not need to order the Apologia Prepared Slide Set in addition.

If you are looking for materials for Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology course, 2nd edition simply order this kit along with our Chick Embryo Study Guide.

Important Note:

A microscope is required to do the microscope labs in this Apoligia biology course. Here are two excellent recommendations:

  • We recommend our affordable Home Microscope - a best-seller and a very popular choice for homeschool families! It's sturdy, easy-to-use, features long-life, variable-intensity LED lighting & allows observers to see intricate cell details
  • Apologia recommends the National Optical Advanced Microscope - a more expensive, but also excellent, option

You can also check out our Selecting a Microscope guide for further help and insight when choosing a microscope that best meets your family's needs.
