Wahoo's 5th Graders Get Up Close and Personal with Anatomy
Students Study Optics and Dissect Cow Eyes!
Students in Mr. Iversen and Mrs. Rezac's fifth grade classes recently completed an optics unit in science class.
Students learned about many kinds of eyes: simple (the kind that worms have), compound (the kind bugs have), and of course, the human eye. Besides learning about the parts of the eye, students performed several experiments to show how those parts work.
Optical illusions, as well as other ways our eyes can be tricked, were observed. As a culmination to the unit, all fifth grade students were offered the chance to dissect a cow's eye. This allowed them to see first hand the different parts of the eye, from the optic nerve to the pupil!
