In this activity, learners investigate color vision as well as plan and conduct their own experiments.
In this activity, learners construct a three-dimensional ambiguous cube to explore visual illusions and how our brains interpret or misinterpret information.
In this activity (12th on the page), learners investigate their ability to discriminate (see) different colors.
In this activity (6th on the page), learners investigate how photoreceptors in the eye (rods and cones) "adapt" to low light conditions.
In this activity, learners calculate the width (horizontal diameter) of the blind spot on their retina. Learners make a blind spot tester using a piece of notebook paper.
In this activity (1st on the page), learners find their blind spot--the area on the retina without receptors that respond to light.
In this activity, learners investigate the sense of sight and develop and conduct their own experiments.
In this trick, hold your hand over a burning candle without getting burned, by reflecting and transmitting the light of two candles. This activity is best suited as a demonstration.
In this activity (16th on the page), learners play a variation of the "I Spy" game to explore color. Learners work in teams with each team assigned a color.
In this activity (13th on the page), learners complete a simple illusion trick to see through their own hand.
In this activity, learners investigate visual perception as well as plan and conduct their own experiments.
How can you make one shade of gray look like two? By putting it against two different color backgrounds! This activity allows learners to perform this sleight of hand very easily.
In this activity (page 2 of PDF), learners play with a lens and a piece of paper to focus an image on the paper. Learners look at different things, and see how the lenses affect the image.
In this activity, learners make a Benham Top to explore visual illusions and optics.
In this easy demonstration (3rd on the page), learners explore depth perception by conducting a test with two pencils.
These two activities (4th on the page) demonstrate the importance of two eyes in judging depth.
In this activity (17th on the page), learners investigate why you cannot see colors in dim light.
In this demonstration (18th on the page), learners conduct a simple test to explore how the cornea refracts light, which is further bent by the eye lens through a process known as accommodation.
In this quick activity/demonstration (5th on the page), learners explore depth perception.
