Live Materials Care Guides

Welcome to the Live materials care and handling resource from Ward's Science. Here you will find instructional and informational literature for the most popular live specimens in our collection. From algae to vertebrates and everything in between, you will find the facts and instructions necessary to properly provide care for your live specimens and enrich your lessons with additional background information.

All literature is provided in pdf format, so you can read the literature on your personal computer or print as many copies as needed for your class. Organized by type of organism, each specimen’s literature is easy to locate. And, you’ll also find a section of safety guidelines, permit applications, and inquiry ideas for live materials instructional use.

We hope you find these resources helpful in your lessons, live specimen setup, and student study. This is the third edition of our literature collection, and we plan to update it often to continue to bring you the most up-to-date information and ideas.

We are dedicated to providing you with the very best, we would truly appreciate your comments on this literature. We value your opinions and will use them to help us improve this and other products in our collection. If you have additional questions about working with your live specimens, please call 800-962-2660.
