Make science homework meaningful by learning science by doing!
This exciting experiment has students discovering that the pupil in their eyes noticeably changes size in the light versus in the dark.
This is an excellent hands-on experience for all students to observe science and to understand that our eyes take in light in order to see.
Included are: teacher notes, a reproducible lab sheet for your students, and post-experiment teacher notes which explain (with a photo) what students will have observed, along with a kid-friendly explanation, real-world applications, and extension activity. The instructions are simple and require no extra materials. The students are literally amazed at what they see and instantly understand what is happening when their eyes "adjust to the dark."
This is a hands-on lab that is incredibly easy for a teacher to implement. Parents enjoy seeing kids doing an actual experiment at home and watching the surprising results.
Your students will love doing this.
