Congratulations on your teaching job! I was a biology teacher for 10 years before going to Flinn Scientific to continue my career as an educator. I would highly suggest reaching out to vendors like Flinn with these types of questions. We have a great collection of resources, both free and for purchase that would be helpful for an anatomy and physiology course. I'm one of the biologists here and I spend some of my time talking with teachers about the resources that will be most helpful. Some categories of supplies include: gloves, dissection kits (tools), dissection trays, preserved specimens, microscopes, histology slides, stethoscopes, blood pressure sets, digestive enzyme lab kit, human respiration lab kit, any sort of hands on activity labs that reinforce homeostasis, kidney function lab (osmosis and diffusion), human models (torsos, organs, etc), blood typing kits (with simulated blood), and immune function kits. We have a couple of new STEM kits that would be great fits for an A&P curriculum. One challenges students to make coating for pills so that they are digested and distributed properly in the body (Called Digestive Connection STEM Design Challenge) and another has students fix broken bones using surgical methods (called Broken Bones STEM Design Challenge). In addition, since you are a new teacher, you can receive our New Teacher Survival Kit, which includes safety tips, lab handouts, a gift certificate and posters.
