In the Eye of the Beholder: The Process of Eye Development

Breona McNeil, Science, Martin Luther King Middle

Curriculum Unit (pdf)


The idea of waves is such a phenomena to humans, and definitely young adults. This unit will allow students a deeper look into the development of the eye. This unit allows learners to gain the foundational pieces of what light is before going into the different parts of the eye and their functions. Learners will be able to use their knowledge of light and apply it to how the eye sees light. With learning the different functions of the eye, students will learn about developmental eye disorders. With knowing the developmental portion, students will use that knowledge and apply it to different case studies. These case studies will show students that developmental disorders do occur before an individual is born.
