The Human Eye
For 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.
For Your Eyes Only
Middle schoolers complete several activities in a unit related to the eye. In 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. In this eye lesson students compare a human eye to the lenses of a camera and explain what a hologram is.
Vision and Optics: Light and Lenses
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.
There's More to Light than Meets the Eye
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.
Would You Believe Your Eyes?
Young scholars 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.
Technology and the Human Eye
Fifth graders compare technology and the human eye. For this science lesson, 5th graders label the parts of the human eye and trace the path of light as it travels through the eye.
Thinking with the Eyes
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.
Intelligent Design and Evolution
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.
The Light for Sight
In this eye and light worksheet, students make models of the eye using black and white cardboard, a light source, and a bowl of water. They explain how each part of the model corresponds to a part of the eye. Students answer 4 discussion questions and produce a labeled diagram of their model indicating the parts of the eye.
In the Eyes of the Beholder
Students identify parts of the eye and their functions through participating in a cow's eye dissection lab. They investigate vision problems and diseases, focusing on their causes, and how abnormal vision can be aided with technology.
In this brightness of stars worksheet, students answer 7 questions about the apparent magnitudes of stars, the sun, and the moon. They compare the brightness of stars, galaxies, astronomical objects and the sun.
Here's Looking at You! Nocturnal Animals-Night Vision
Third graders investigate the special characteristics of nocturnal animals that differentiates them from others animals. They compare/contrast how nocturnal animals survive and grow in the nighttime environment by looking at the senses they use to navigate.
Luminous Efficacy (Efficiency)
Students examine the basics of luminous efficacy and why it is used. In this light source lesson students test energy efficiency and the luminous efficiency for babies.
Stars and The Modern Telescope
In this stars and the modern telescope instructional activity, students use a photograph taken by the 2MASS telescope to calculate the number of bright stars and faint stars in the picture, the size of the picture, and the number of stars expected to be seen across the entire sky based on the photographed area.
Students study the effects of global warming on specific organisms. They research the possible problems global warming is causing.
Seeing the Way: A Brief History of Cataract Surgery
Students study the eye and how all the parts work together. In this cataract lesson students view an interactive website on the eye.
How Are the Eyes of Different Organisms Adapted for Sight?
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.
The Real Bionic Man
Students examine the work that scientists have been doing to create artificial human parts. In this exploratory lesson students research the human eye and brain using the Internet.
