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 for Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology course.
This Apologia biology kit no longer contains a chick embryo microslide, as it's no longer available. Instead, the kit contains a chick embryo study guide with all the images that were included with the microslide.
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.
Note: You need a microscope to do the labs. Apologia recommends the National Optical Advanced Microscope. Our Home Microscope is a comparable microscope for a lower price. See our Selecting a Microscope guide for help choosing a microscope that best meets your family's needs.
If you are ordering this kit, you don't need to order the Apologia Prepared Slide Set in addition.
