Third graders dissect cow eyes in science

Tenacre third graders have been learning about the physical properties of light and the physiology and anatomy of the human eye. They dissected a cow eye specimen, which has a similar construction to the human eye. They saw first-hand the anatomical parts that they have been studying. The dissection exercise provided students with a relevant comparison to explain some of the various diseases and problems that arise with the eyes of any typical mammalian organism.
Tenacre nurtures and challenges each child, every day.
