GCSE Psychology students gain a hands-on understanding of the different parts of their eyes.
Year 10 girls working towards a GCSE in Psychology are digging deeper into their topic on ‘how we see our world’. They’ve been investigating both vision and perception – how we see objects through our eyes and how our brain interprets these images.
To cement this learning, they’ve started to make three-dimensional models of their eyes with papier-mâché. Once finished, they will cut open their model and label the various parts inside such as the retina, cornea and the iris. Such a hands-on task is helping the students to understand the location and function of different parts of the eye and how they work together to send electrical signals to the brain to give us vision.
