Students gain a conceptual comprehension of the functioning of the Human Eye in relation to optics and optical vision correction. They explore optics with light sources and various lenses, relating these to visual acuity, accommodation, near point, blind spots, focal length, object/image distance as well as testing their vision with a Snellan Eye Chart.
In this reading comprehension worksheet, students learn about the human eye by reading a 2 page passage and studying a diagram of the eye. Students answer 8 questions, and label a diagram of the eye.
Students compare/contrast the human eye to two other organisms. They use micro viewers to identify the human eye structures, complete a Venn diagram worksheet, identify the function of each eye structure, and answer discussion questions.
Students research the structures and functions of the eye. In small groups they dissect a model of the human eye, identify structures of the eye, and describe the functions of the photoreceptors.
Students examine how humans perceive color. In this refracted light lesson, students explore the different ways color is seen by the human eye. Students will use colored lights and colored paper and solid objects to make additive color mixtures.
Students recognize the effects of atmospheric perspective. They comprehend how human eyes perceive depth. Students create a multi-paneled drawing that shows depth and appears much like a hologram. They are told how holograms work.
Students complete several activities in a unit related to the eye. For this eye lesson, students work in groups to research information about the human eye and create a multimedia presentation. They research anatomy of the eye, how the eye works, eye safety, and visual disorders. 
Students identify the parts of a human eye.  For this eye lesson students compare a human eye to the lenses of a camera and explain what a hologram is.
Students explore the concept that not all light is visible to the human eye. Although UV light is not visible, it can still be harmful, causing sunburns or skin cancer. They use special beads to detect UV light around the school. Students then conduct an experiment to determine what types of materials are best for blocking UV light on Earth, as well as in space.
Students study the parts and functions of the human eye. They create dodecagons which are twelve-sided figures with twelve equal angles and share these with the class so that each student can begin to see how many different illusions can be created
Students explore mantid eyes and human eyes. In this mantid eyes and human eyes research lesson, students work in small groups to gather information. Students read books, observe mantids, and do experiments. Students then present their research to the class.
Pupils study the structures of the human eye.  In this eye device lesson students examine different eye problems and devices that can help to resolve them. 
Fifth graders compare technology and the human eye. In this science lesson, 5th graders label the parts of the human eye and trace the path of light as it travels through the eye.
Students investigate the human eye. In this biology activity, students read the book Look At Your Eyes and locate the various parts of their eye. Students play the game "I Spy."
What does a human hair look like at 40 times its normal size? Young scientists find out the answer to that question and more in an introductory microscope activity. In the description, it says the investigation is intended for ninth grade honors biology, but it seems more appropriate for middle level life science, or wherever learners are introduced to microscope use in your district.
The human eye is the focus of this biology PowerPoint. The presentation takes a virtual trip inside of the human eye and allows learners to view the various parts of the eye. The best part (for me) are all of the optical illusions that are embedded in the slide show. This is sure to be a hit with your kids!
Students investigate the human eye and its parts. They read and discuss various books about eyes and sight, draw a rough draft of an eye diagram, and create a final draft of their eye diagram including labeled parts using Kid Pix computer software.
Students study the human eye. In this science lesson plan, students construct 3 models of the human eye and take part in a play that highlights the parts of the eye.
In this eye to eye worksheet, students view, analyze and discuss with their classmates four captions associated with human eyes and bird eyes. Students explore how to take better care of their eyes.
This video about a delicate, often controversial topic, does not argue for one area or another, but does talk about the random process versus design of an involved organ. The lecturer talks freely about how infinite complexity such as with the Mandelbrot set, is an example of the most "intelligent design" so far. This and the 3 accompanying videos would be stimulating starters for both the academic content and the philosophical debate.
