Researching the eye

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Now that we know what about the structure and function of the eye, let’s try and answer these questions:-

  • How do optical illusions (such as Optical Illusions) work?
  • Explain the evolution of the eye.
  • Compare the eyes of predators with those of their prey.
  • What is stereoscopic vision and how does it help animals survive?

Get into groups of 3 or 4.  Each person in your group should choose one question to research and answer.  Spend about 30 mins on this.  Come back together as a group and share your answers with each other.  Once each member of the group has responded, write down at least 2 follow-up questions for each topic, then try and answer those.
