Lab & Classroom Safety Information

 
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Variety There was a good variety of fish in the set. The dogfish shark was large and it had 3 babies within (much to the delight of my high school marine science students). The ray and skate are really difficult to dissect as the tissue is so dense and the visceral space so small. It would have been better if there was only 1 and not 2 skate/ray. The ratfish was pretty spectacular.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for inquiry! I purchased these preserved fish for an inquiry lab with 4th graders. We didn't dissect them but simply explored! Students examined all fish, looking for interesting fish features to research and made comparisons between each fish. The students loved the opportunity to examine the fish up close and not just on paper or in a book! We set up the inquiry outside on picnic tables. The preservative is quite strong. Used gloves and safety goggles. Fabulous!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from more bang for your buck I have gone to several of the other scientific catalogue companies for specimens and this is the one that gets me 2 extra species for several activities I am using in my AP Biology class.
