Mammalian Structure and Function Dissection Kit for AP® Biology



Featuring Carolina's Perfect Solution® specimens
For a class of 30. Students study mammalian anatomy with this detailed classroom kit designed to address the AP® Biology topic, Animal Structure and Function. Working in pairs, students complete a comprehensive survey of tissues, organs, and organ systems using the cat as a model organism.

Investigations of major organ systems lead students to a greater understanding of how these systems interact, reinforcing the AP® Biology concepts that help students develop a framework for modern biology and gain an appreciation of science as a process.

The Introductory Histology Set (item #311974) included in the kit contains 25 slides representing major tissue types and is ideal for additional lab extension activities. Kit also includes 15 Carolina's Perfection Solution® plain cats (dry-packed, 1 per bag), 15 plastic storage bags, waterproof student name tags, a teacher's manual with reproducible student sheets and Bioreview® Sheets, and a Dissection of the Cat (item #455573) laboratory manual.

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: Currently, our supply of preserved cats is limited due to a lack of availability. We sincerely apologize for any delays or inconvenience this causes. We suggest placing your order as early as possible. In addition, if you can receive the specimens early (before you need them), indicate this when placing your order. Please contact Carolina Customer Service (800.334.5551 or customer_service@carolina.com) for more accurate expected ship dates.
