Starfish are a great introduction to the skills needed to complete a successful dissection. Not only are the students engaged to see inside these sea creatures, the fact that a starfish has multiple appendages help ease their anxiety of making a mistake. If they do mis-read the direction, they can simple try again. Also, the starfish offers a large enough specimen, without a large price tag, to be able to see inside and identify all the part properly. Sometimes, an overzealous biology student can mis-cut an earthworm for instance and the rest of the dissection could be extremely hard to complete. In closing, the starfish dissection is one of my favourites to include in the school year and a student favourite as well.

Love these sea stars! - 687612 The students get so excited to dissect these starfish. The large ones are easy to dissect and the internal organs are very identifiable. They are so different from vertebrates that the students are intrigued and ask great questions. They have low odour and nice preserved outer surface for the students to investigate.
