A Look Inside Our Eye

For the last few days we have been working on the Human Eye. We like to do all of the Hands-On Activties first, then add some written work and research to complete each section ofthe project.

So far we have made a large Layer Diagram of the Eye:

Photobucket
A Picture of all 3 boys' work.....

Photobucket
A Close-Up of Ratchet's Diagram....The Outer Eye

Photobucket
The Cornea

Photobucket
The Iris

Photobucket
The Pupil

Photobucket
The Lens and Retina

Adding the clear plastic to the Cornea really helped the boys visualize what was inside their eye without poking each other in the eye..... always looking for ways to enhance the learning experience while keeping it safe.

The next day we did a mini slide diagram of the Human Eye...

Photobucket
All 3 boys did one of their own.... still not sure where I am going to add it in their binders so it is in a clear page protector for now.

Photobucket
Close-Up of Halo's Diagram... showing the Iris and Pupil

.... the Retina

Today we did some 3D Models of the Human Eye....

Oh wow. We did a human Body lapbook and did the easy to make learning human body book that had that exact thing in it. I like yours too. If you have that book my boys love the brain hat and learned so much from that.
