The Anatomy of the Visual System Education Curriculum for Grades K-3 was developed for educators teaching kindergarten through third grade. Currently, early grade school curriculums have limited educational material available for elementary teachers relating to the visual system. This project was designed to provide material to elementary instructors as a way of introducing the visual system to children. The project consists of ten lesson plans ranging from basic ocular anatomy to function of the visual system. Each lesson includes activities such as art, reading, and writing and is designed to last 20-30 minutes.
