The Carolina® BioKit® is a single-concept classroom unit that gives students a hands-on approach to biology.

Starfish Dissection BioKit® introduces students to the anatomy of an echinoderm. Kit includes 30 plain starfish, 30 self-locking storage bags, a teacher's manual with blackline masters for reproducible student guides, and free 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction._x000D__x000D_
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._x000D_
