Oh, and a word of warning--these online dissections use actual specimens, not drawings.

Laboratory Manuals and Equipment

Much of the following material is available off-site, from sources other than Amazon.  To keep things simple, I have used as few suppliers as possible.  You may find other sources for these materials, but these links are provided to give you a place to start.

The lab manual are from Castle Heights Press.  Written by Kathleen and Mark Julicher, these manuals  are meant for use in small schools or the homeschool.  The labs contain clear instructions and are simple to do in the home, yet provide the student with solid high school laboratory experience.
