Five Echinoderm specimens from 4 different Echinoderm classes are provided in individual containers for observation and dissection.

Includes teacher’s manual and student guide containing reproducible blackline masters, background information, dissection guides for each of the 5 animals, and reflection questions.

Important Notice: The supply of dissectible starfish specimens is limited due to a decline in natural populations of starfish, which has been attributed to sea star wasting disease. This disease, thought to be caused by a virus, has decimated populations of starfish along the East and West Coasts of the US. Future availability is uncertain at this time, as population recovery of these keystone species is critical.
