- A mirror
- White paper
- Black pen
- An eye patch! Or something they can use to gently cover one eye for about five minutes (scarf, tie, bandana...)
- A white bowl (to draw on, one you can clean easily or don’t mind being marked) Or just use paper.
- Felt tip pens / marker pens
To join the dissection at home:
- An eyeball (easily obtained from a fish head, or you may be able to get a pig’s eye from a butcher)
- plate or tray
- Dissecting scissors or small sharp scissors
- Forceps or tweezers
