Eyeful of Science

Holy Angels sixth graders got an eyeful of science recently as they dissected cow’s eyes as part of a unit on light and the eye. Pairs of students discovered that the lens of the cow eye worked just like magnifying lenses they used in previous activities.

Part of the learning process involved studying aspects of visible light and the electromagnetic spectrum. After mastering the concept of refraction and lenses, students diagrammed the corresponding parts of an eye.

Science teacher Barb Gunnare noted, “The students were nervous that the lab would be too gross, but the excitement of handling an actual eye lens overcame their fears.” One student shared an often repeated assessment, “This was the best class ever!”
