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.

What is Color?
"To understand the phenomenon of color, it helps to think about light as a wave." This is a brief and very informative instructional video on what color is and why we are able to see it. Your young scientists will learn such terms as the period and frequency of waves, as well explore how light is absorbed and what colors we are able to see.

For Your Eyes Only
Students 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.

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.

Entering the Eye
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.

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.

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.

Would You Believe Your Eyes?
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

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.

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 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.

Students discuss the effects of downhill motion on the body, and discern how the human eye perceives motion by studying Edward Muybridge's photography. They observe seasonal changes and identify elements related to the winter months in temperate climates.

An Eye on Science
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.
