Science 8 Class Examines the Eye

Grade 8 students spent some time examining the different parts of the eye through dissecting the eyes of cows. As part of their lab, students had to identify the cornea, lens, retina, aqueous humour and optic nerve. Depending on the condition of the eye specimen, some students use the removed cornea as a magnifier. The hands-on activity helped a lot of students understand how the eye functions better than if they were looking at a diagram (though dissections are a little messier.)
