Science Experiment Has 5th Graders Keeping One Eye Open
Eyeballs! Wasn't Halloween last week? Halloween was last week, but this week in Mrs. Baham's science class 5th graders dissected a cow's eye! Jamie, in Mrs. Gilliland's class enjoyed seeing the retna because, "It was the prettiest part." However, she did think the eye was, "Sticky and smelled like rotten egg." Ewwwww!
Sarah and Emma from Mr. Edmisten's class explained the whole dissection process. After gathering the required tools-- tweezers, scissors, and scalpel -- they began the dissection process. They explained, "First, you had to make two incisions. Then, you had to cut off all the fat around the eye and remove the jelly substance and the lens." At this point they describe the eye as feeling "hard, like a marble." Sarah and Emma continue, "You had to pull off the retna and find the optic nerve, which is your eye's blind spot." Both Emma and Sarah shared a most fascinating fact; that the cow's eye has something called tapetum, which is not found in human eyes and, "is very colorful."
One fact that Sarah thought was very interesting about the dissection was that the eye was, "Hard, and not squishy like you think," while Emma was most interested to find out, "The retina is a hole in the eye."
Each 5th grade student participated in the dissection with a partner. This is the first time that elementary students have done an animal part dissection in science lab. Sounds like it was a hit!
All photos from the cow dissection can be seen here, on Fairmont's Flickr page.
