This large Ocean Specimen set includes different sea life specimens, from crabs to jellyfish and octopus.

The World Register of Marine Species has described 250 000 species and estimates another 750 000 are yet to be described. To simplify the study of such a large number of species, biologists have organised them into the following groups: Crustaceans, Cnidarians, Echinoderm, Mollusc and Vertebrate.

This set contains at least one species from each category. Try identifying the characteristics of each group, and sort the resin blocks accordingly. What is it that makes them unique? What do they eat, where do they live, and how do they escape predators?

These real-life specimens encased in resin allows a close-up of marine creatures from different angles. They are an excellent resource to promote scientific inquiry and investigation. The specimens are safe to use by young children.

Also available is the Ocean Classroom Investigation - Teacher's Guide. This glossy booklet by Melissa Dash & John Kerr includes extra ideas and activities for teachers using the insect, spider and life cycle specimens. It also includes links to the new Australian Curriculum and BLMs, and isrecommended for year 1 to 6 science classes.
