Students explore animal diversity and learn to classify different animals using a cladogram. The kit includes a classroom set each of preserved crayfish, grasshoppers, perch, frogs, and rats. Students observe and record similarities among the organisms then create a cladogram predicting their phylogenetic order based on external-morphological traits. Student groups then dissect each organism, observe internal anatomy, and share their findings with the class.

Featuring Carolina's Perfect Solution® specimens

Grades 9-12. For a class of 32 working in groups of 4. Students explore animal diversity and learn to classify different animals using a cladogram. The kit includes a classroom set each of preserved crayfish, grasshoppers, perch, frogs, and rats. Students observe and record similarities among the organisms then create a cladogram predicting their phylogenetic order based on external-morphological traits. Student groups then dissect each organism, observe internal anatomy, and share their findings with the class. A detailed teacher's manual containing background information, pre-lab practice problems, extension activities, dissection guides for each organism, and reproducible student sheets is also provided.

Student Objectives:

  • Observe anatomical evolutionary patterns across the animal kingdom
  • Study the external anatomical structures of a crustacean, an insect, a fish, an amphibian, and a mammal
  • Learn how to construct phylogenetic trees or cladograms
  • Dissect an organism representative of Kingdom Animalia

Carolina's Perfect Solution Specimens

Carolina's Perfect Solution®—Safe. Convenient. Superior.

Our commitment to producing the finest preserved specimens on the market has led us to Carolina's Perfect Solution®, a unique, revolutionary fixative that is dramatically improving the quality of classroom dissection.

  • No formalin odor
  • No dangerous off-gassing
  • No dark and unnatural appearance

Instead, organisms preserved with Carolina's Perfect Solution® retain more lifelike color and texture. Because students study more natural-looking specimens, it is easier for them to identify the structures and, as a result, learn anatomy.

Carolina's Perfect Solution® specimens are safe and nontoxic, which means you need no special ventilation and there's no costly disposal.
