Icky - Sticky - Cow Eyes

My students need scalpels and gloves in order to dissect a cow eye!

My Students

Science is intended to be fun and I strive to reach this goal daily in my classroom. We are a motivated bunch and I believe the more hands-on experiences a student has the more they will connect the understanding!

My students are a fun bunch.

They tend to come from all walks of life but the commonality is that they love being in my room. The students do not let socioeconomic status, no matter how low or high it may be, change how they feel about science. Science is a discovery topic that they embrace because they can change the variables. I love to let them learn through exploration but I also require 100% effort.

My Project

My students will use the scalpels and gloves during a cow eye dissection. The gloves are for safety and the scalpel is for precision. Prior to the dissection the students will discover how images enter the eye and how the various parts of the eye translate the information. The students are held to the 100% accountability rule when it comes to a dissection in my room. What this means is that the student will be able to identify and explain each part of the eye before dissection.

This project will open a level of understanding that my students may not otherwise have.

They will look at diagrams and videos but the actual dissection cements the knowledge that is required to move forward.

Grades 6-8
