Parasites Toolbox

Teaching Toolbox: Parasites
They are creepy and crawly – and that’s why kids love learning about parasites. This toolbox “exposes” children to parasite biodiversity from the small to the large (a 130ft tapeworm found in whales).

Using toolbox materials, students go on a field expedition and dissect a “Roadkill Raccoon", handle preserved specimens, discuss hypotheses, conduct experiments, and share data.  In short, this toolbox provides hands-on biology activities that the students will never forget! 

This toolbox is no longer available for the 2017-2018 academic year. Reservations for the 2018-2019 year will open on August 1st.
