Dissection, the NGSS, and Three-Dimensional Instruction

Are you looking for ways to integrate dissection into your three-dimensional instruction? We’re here to help with teaching tips and resources, webinars, lab kits, and supplies.

The Next Generation Science Standards* (NGSS) do not explicitly refer to dissection, but you can easily meet several science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and performance expectations with dissection. It’s an ideal way to emphasize hands-on, minds-on learning while getting your students excited about science.

Check out the resources below for ideas on how to do it!

Carolina Dissection BioKit®

Carolina Dissection BioKits

The Carolina BioKit Dissection Series is getting a make-over! Most of these classroom kits have been updated to support NGSS and 3-dimensional instruction. Each updated kit includes materials for at least 30 students, a comprehensive Teacher’s Manual, and a reproducible Student Guide. The Student Guide provides a phenomenon and driving question; step-by-step dissection instructions with labeled, color photographs and illustrations; assessments; and more! Digital resources are also included. Kits are also available with or without Carolina’s reusable dissection mats! Look for BioKits that have been “updated to support NGSS and 3-dimensional instruction”.
