Primary Science Students Dissect an Eyeball! ?

As part of their lessons on ‘how does light travel?’, students from Monkwood and Rawmarsh dissected a pig’s eyeball to learn about how the eye works.

Before completing a dissection of the eye, they learnt about the parts of the eye in great depth.

Then, the children took part in an eye dissection to build on their knowledge of the eye. Independently, they split the eye into two parts.

They were left with the solid lens, aqueous humor and vitreous humour; the front of the eye with the iris; and the rear of the eye where you would find the optic nerve.
