A compilation of clips of animals from different habitats. The compilation focuses on the eyes of each animal to emphasise how they see the world in different ways and the characteristics they need to survive in their habitat.

Note: there is no narration in this clip.

This clip is from:
Science Clips, How We See Things
First broadcast:
12 October 2007

Ask the children to watch the clip and see how many of the different animals featured they can identify. Ask them what part of each animal was shown. As the clip has no narration, the children could research each animal shown and write their own narration for the clip, explaining how the eyes of each animal differ. Following this, the question "are two eyes better than one and how much more can a person see with two eyes than one?" could be put to the children for them to test.
