  • Aligned with Big Idea 2 and Essential Knowledge 2.A.1, 2.C.1, 2.C.2, 2.C.3, 2.D.1, and 2.D.3
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 1, 2, 3, and 6

Explore how open and closed circulatory systems maintain homeostasis.

  • Observe differences between circulatory systems by microscopically examining Daphnia and Casper Fish™
  • Evaluate response of Daphnia's circulatory system to various abiotic factors by measuring heart rate

Students use Daphnia and Casper Fish™ to observe the differences between open and closed circulatory systems. In the inquiry activity, students monitor Daphnia's heart rate to investigate the organism's response to various environmental changes. The 8-Station Deluxe Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4, plus 2-1/2-gal aquarium and setup materials for Casper Fish™. Deluxe kit comes with a prepaid coupon to request perishable materials later because the aquarium must be established (set up 48 hr) before fish arrive.

Carolina Investigations® for AP* Biology Kits

Teach AP® Biology Your Way with Support from a Name You Can Trust

With the current AP® Biology curriculum, you are no longer limited to 12 prescribed labs in your classroom—meaning you can now teach the course using labs that fit your classroom and student interests.


Exclusive kits from Carolina

Carolina is proud to be the only supplier with unique kits and activities that are exclusively designed for the new AP® curriculum. Our Carolina Investigations® series is specifically aligned to the Big Ideas and Science Practices and was built from the ground up with the help of expert AP® teachers.


Inquiry made simple

Focused on making inquiry easier in your classroom, Carolina Investigations® kits feature activities that allow students to take a guided approach to inquiry while building their Science Practices and connecting the Big Ideas. These kits offer an initial skill-building activity that features a more traditional classroom approach. This is followed by a secondary investigation using a unique experimental design template to help guide those student-driven, inquiry-based learning opportunities.
