UOI 6: The Eye Dissection

In science on the 9th of November we dissected an eyeball! (A cow eyeball) Apparently it is similar to the human eye except in human eyes there are a few extra muscles that help us move our eyes in more directions than cows.
 We got to look at the different types of muscles an parts of the eye like the lens, sclera and the retina.

 We were in groups of 3 and we took turns using the scalpel.

This is a picture of the retina. It kind of looks like a Paua (A New Zealand Shell)

It was a lot of fun, but many of us were squeamish so some of us didn't touch the eyes (I did!)
