This printable contains 13 clear and simple cross sectional diagrams of the human eye. They photocopy well and are great for use as a labeling and coloring exercise for your students.
The core eye anatomy diagram, designed as the labeling exercise, has a fully colored and labeled reference chart to go with it. In case you need a little refresher before going over your lesson, or want something for your slightly older children to read, we have added a simply worded, but terminologically accurate summary, describing the function of the eye, and each of the labeled parts.
This package is designed to be very flexible, for many different uses. Some of these eye diagrams could be printed on an overhead, or included in a higher level test. There are blank versions, so you can customize it for your specific needs.
Complete Package Contents:
- One colored and labeled reference chart, showing the cross-sectional anatomy of the eye, (Not for black and white photocopying).
- One black and white, labeled reference chart showing the cross-sectional anatomy of the eye, (identical)
- One black and white eye diagram with blank lines, for students to fill in labels, (matches the above)
- One black and white diagram showing the cross-sectional anatomy of the eye, with no lines or labels, so you can customize what labels the diagram will include
- Two diagrams showing how the eye uses the ciliary muscle to focus light at close distances and long distances - one in color, the other in black and white
- The same eye diagram as above, asking students to describe how the eye focuses light during close and distance focus, in black and white
- The same eye diagram as above, unlabeled and untitled, in black and white
- One simplified, black and white diagram, embedded in the reference information, with notes describing how the major parts of the eye work. Good for explaining things to adults and young children alike.
- Two simplified, black and white eye diagrams, one titled, and one completely blank except for a dotted line showing the axis along which light would travel. These are nice for explaining concepts, with fewer distracting details.
- Two black and white diagrams with dotted lines showing how light travels to, and within the eye, when viewing an object, (a butterfly). One version is titled, the other blank.
- An eight page reference summary that includes:
- a two page, simplified description of how the eye works, (one page is a diagram, as described above)
- a six page reference sheet with descriptions for each of the labeled parts, and simple little side sections, that explain the following:
- How your pupil changes size
- How the lens in your eye changes shape
- The different types of light sensing cells
