Science Shepherd Dissection Specimens ( Set of 5)
Includes earthworm, grasshopper, freshwater clam, perch & double-injected fetal pig.
So it took us a few months to get it together, but we are now able to offer a kit that includes the lab supplies and specimens needed for the Science Shepherd Biology course. We're offering a complete kit (includes non-consumable lab supplies and dissection specimens [earthworm, grasshopper, freshwater clam, perch & double-injected fetal pig] as well as the two groups of components separately. We set it up this way so you could purchase the complete kit the first time you use the course, then replace only the dissection specimens for use with another child.
What do you do when you're a homeschooling dad and a medical doctor and you don't see many good options for parents tackling high school science at home? Why, you write your own, of course! And the result is impressive, especially for a newcomer to the curriculum scene. Author Scott Hardin didn't just reinvent the wheel here - I think he's added the equivalent of antigravity boosters with some of the excellent features he's built in. The courses currently available include Life Science (for 7th-9th grade) and Biology (for 10th-12th grade). Both courses are written to the student, and intended to be very user-friendly for parents without a science background. They are academically strong with straightforward text that covers challenging concepts in an appealing way. Compared to some of the other science curriculum available to homeschoolers, these stand firmly in the "college prep" category. As you might have guessed from the
Items listed in this section tend to be complete science programs with a teacher and student component, requiring few supplements besides science supplies.
Mine have been in a box for the last few months in my school room, waiting to be dissected.
No, they don't need to be refrigerated.
