Best Resource for Homeschool Families for Science Dissection Kits for HomeschoolersDissection kits for homeschool families and small schools can seem expensive because they are usually sold in bulk school sized dissection kit bundles. But if you are a homeschooling family or a small school you may only need one (or a few) small set of specimens. This post literally took me HOURS to put together so I hope it helps some of you!! PLEASE note that each dissection kit price can (and probably has) changed since I posted this so please double check the price of a dissection kit before you purchase!
I am a firm believer in providing our children all of the learning opportunities that we can to them and I am a huge supporter of hands-on learning! Having my B.S. in Biology means I’m a little bit of a science freak too. I know as a homeschooler, or a small school, that you may not have the budget or resources to find things as your students get older such as lab equipment, dissection supplies, etc. Or maybe you just don’t have the time to weed through all of the options – but I feel it is extremely important!
So I really wanted to pull together a simple list and categorize animal dissection sets that you can find on Amazon! Why? Because many times if you order directly from the company, with a small order for only a few students, the shipping charge is just unreal. But Amazon is MUCH more affordable on the shipping, if not free, and a simple dissection set can easily cost as little as $10-$20.
Of course I majored in Biology so hands-on labs are definitely my “thing”! Any prices listed below INCLUDE shipping and are individual pieces unless otherwise listed. You’ll also note many of them say non-toxic – unlike when I was a kid doing dissections they now have a new non-toxic formula for preserving specimens which does not include formaldehyde which means less odor and no special disposal! Note – color injected arterial systems are usually LATEX-based!
Please verify prices before purchasing as prices change constantly.

    Thank you so much for putting this together! I am going to be homeschooling my 7th grade son and he asked if we could dissect a frog. Gulp. I have to admit to being one of those students in high school that didn’t enjoy that part of biology. I put a big smile on my face, though, and said, “Sure we can! I will find a place online to order a dissection kit!” Now, we not only have the choice of dissecting a frog, but so many other fun things. Awesome! (For him more than me. LOL)
