Maryville sixth graders in Chelli Green’s science class dissected sheep eyeballs in March.

The students had been studying light and how the eye uses light to see. Truett Haer holds his eyeball up to examine the different parts. Students were tested on each part of the eyeball and its function. “This is one of my favorite units because the kids get to see and understand how their eyes work. It’s fun to watch them dissect all the parts and tell what each part is and what it does. I am so lucky to teach such a fun subject all day,” Green said.
