Product Description
Lab: Observing Live Planaria. No biology class is complete without labs that involve living organisms. This "living organism" lab is suitable for life science students in grades 7 -12.

A planarian is a flatworm belonging to the phylum Platyhelminthes. Planaria are excellent organisms with which to study the structure and behavior of a live animal. In this investigation you will provide very simple stimuli and make observations with regard to the behavior and actions displayed by the planaria.
