Thank you, everyone, for your input here. I read all of it. Grateful for this community.
My son will not do any dissections. It’s more of a squeamish issue for him. He can’t consider the idea of cutting into the animals (beyond a worm).
I ordered the microscope-only lab kit and either will get the BJU lab dissection DVD or we’ll find them online and he will fill out the report.
Do not give up on the intensives, yet. Read here:
And keep up here for further info:
Lab dissection DVD:
Receive one-on-one instruction before you start your dissection experiment! This DVD by Bob Jones University biology and science department chairman Tom Coss features detailed instruction on how to dissect a crayfish, frog, perch and worm. He begins by noting external features, then through the process of dissection, demonstrating proper technique. 72 minutes on DVD.
This resource is also known as Bob Jones Biology Lab DissectionMelissaParticipant
Thank you, Rachel! We were going to do the one in Columbus (we’re near Cincinnati) but I’ll check back later to see if anything close shows up.
Check on both boards. The main FB page to find teachers and to put together intensives again is the Jeremiah page.my3boysParticipant
Can you post the virtual labs you found online? If it’s not too much trouble. My up and coming high school student will not be doing the dissections either…at least that is the idea right now. If he can through a class, then he might, but we wouldn’t be able to at home 🙂Melanie32Participant
Here are links to two websites that offer alternative labs for biology:

Hope that helps! 🙂
