In talking with other families I find many are concerned about how to do experiments. Fear not there are several ways to help you with that. You can do some dissections online. This is a great option if mom or your teen are squeamish (not judging, my teen would pass out if she had to actually cut into something real).
If you are ready to do a dissection there are kits for you. Everything in one place. Here is a kit commonly used in high school science:
