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.

FREE 1-year access to digital resources that support NGSS instruction included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I used this last year with my students. It worked wonderfully. The guide is great with the color photos showing the kids what they should be looking for and what they ought to be cutting and how. I would recommend this for anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price What a bargain! To have the entire kit for this amount of money is great. Made it possible to supply the entire classroom with their own kits, so nobody had to share. EXCELLENT!
