Animal Diversity Set for AP® Biology

(backordered: in stock 1/18/24)


For a class of 30. Students perform hands-on dissection to study the diversity of life using 13 specimens from the animal kingdom. By comparing shared characteristics and evolutionary patterns, students explore the phylogenic classification of animals and observe the structural differences across the animal kingdom.

This set addresses National Science Education Standards and AP® Biology course topics. It includes a detailed instruction manual with reproducible blackline masters, background information, dissection guides for each of the 13 animals, reflection questions, and extension activities.

AP® is a trademark registered and/or owned by the College Board®, which was not involved in the production of, and does not endorse, this product.

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.
