Seeing Structure and Function: Cow Eye Dissections

Help me give my students cow eyeball specimens to help them with their dissection project. Students will be dissecting cow eyeballs to learn about the relationship between structure and function, specifically in the nervous system.

My Students

According to the English dictionary, "union" is defined as the action or the fact of being joined together. Students at our middle school embody that idea as a diverse group of individuals who come from various ethnic and economic backgrounds.

Our students come with a hunger to learn about the world around them and how to interact with it.

They ask hard questions and search for answers. They have aspirations and dreams. They come to school every day ready to learn.

My Project

One of the major concepts we cover in our seventh grade curriculum is the relationship between structure and function. My students will engage in this concept through a dissection of a cow eyeball. Looking at the various parts of the eye and learning about their functions helps our students to see how an organ's function is related to how it is structured.

The students in my class will learn how to think like scientists as they look at the various parts of the eye.

In our class, we emphasis deconstructing a structure and understanding how it works. Eyeballs do this well!
