The Incredible Eye

The Incredible Eye

One of the things that we studied this year in Biology was the eye. The eye is an amazing sense organ that is reactive to light and pressure. Did you know that the eye muscles are the fastest muscles in the body or that the lifespan of your eyelashes is only about 5 weeks? This unit study can be used for various ages. Listed below are just a few various links to different free activities that I have found on the internet along with photos of the cow eye dissection that we performed this year. Feel free to contour the unit study to your family’s learning needs and desires. Happy Homeschooling friends!
