Cow Eye Dissection

Step-by-step instructions for a science lab to dissect a cow eye

This is a great activity for middle and high school students. It allows them to participate in a dissection, while teaching the anatomy and structure of the eye. 

To get started, watch the YouTube video Cow’s Eye Dissection: Exploratorium.  It can be a support for guiding instruction. It offers good explanations in age appropriate language.
