The Human Eye September 4, 2015

This great interactive resource from UK opticians Vision Direct focusses (no pun intended) on the human eye. There are two main sections. In the first you can click on the various parts of the eye to learn what they are called and what they do. In the second you can explore how the eye allows people to see. You can see how the iris alters the size of the pupil depending on the brightness and also watch how the lens changes shape to adjust the focus length.

It’s great to see that the resource is also available in Welsh…

There are a whole host of websites out there extolling the virtues of various foods and their health benefits as part of a balanced diet. You can create a balanced lesson by selectively picking and choosing  material from a variety of them. 🙂 For salad, look at Salad Days. If you’re after cheese, there are resources from the aptly named British Cheese Board. Dairy in general? DairyCo For a healthy start to to day, look at Shake Up Your Wake Up. Fish? Fish is the Dish. Potatoes? Grow Your Own Potatoes. Bread and other foods from grain? GrainChain

Or you could go to Food A Fact of Life which incorporates material from a lot of the organisations above!
