This exercise may be used to reinforce and strengthen student’s understanding of Scientific Inquiry and the Scientific Method in a gentle and fun way.  The use of a document camera will allow the teacher to add as much rigor to the project as is grade appropriate.  Essentially students will look at the images of their classmates’ eyes and try to discover to whom the eyes belong.  Additionally, students could use hard class data to make predictions about human population variations or gender variations or any other variable pools the teacher or students wish to try.
