Studies in Evolutionary Milestones of the Animal Kingdom
While images contain a great deal of information about animals, they provide only a glimpse of what can actually be learned by the study of actual preserved whole specimens. Observation of preserved specimens results in the understanding of form and function of bodies, methods of identifying organisms, relationships between organisms or groups of organisms and life cycles.
Each of these collections contain preserved specimens encased in a clear resin material making it easy to observe them from every side for detailed examination. Teacher information guide, fact sheets, student activity sheets, and answer keys are included. Both collections are delivered in a protective hinged display case with handle for easy display and transport. Perfect for classroom use, home-schoolers or zoology studies.
