CLASSROOM – Vision
We can see clearly in the classroom after our vision exam. It’s National Eye Exam Month and Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month. Since we’re all heading back to school, getting our vision checked makes sure we can keep up in class. A routine eye exam is a simple process conducted by an optometrist.
This week in the classroom, we will learn a little about anatomy. Below is a diagram of an eye. After studying the chart, see if you can label it using the blank chart in this week’s projects.
HOW TO OBSERVE in the CLASSROOM – Vision
Download and print this week’s projects. We offer two this week and some suggestions for other ways to celebrate. You can also follow the suggestions below to help your students explore the days in their own way. It might surprise you what they discover! We’re often surprised by our own discoveries!
Celebrate Every Day in the Classroom by:
1. Asking a question about the day or observance and finding the answer.
2. Exploring the subject further. Whether you read a book, interview an expert, watch a documentary, or run an experiment, there is always more to learn about the observance.
3. Writing about the day or observance. You can write about what you learned or what the day means to you.
4. Telling someone about the day. You might be sharing information that is helpful to someone. Or, you might brighten someone’s day.
5. Solving a problem. Many observances discuss issues around the world that need fixing. How would you fix it?
6. Being creative. Draw, paint, build, design, bake, create your idea of what the observance means.
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
