I do a color detection lab using the Visual Mills software. I've had two students over the last 12 years with color blindness make interesting case studies compared to the rest of the class but everyone usually finds some abnormalities.

I don't know whether this is too high level for the situation, but I have
done a lab component on binocular rivalry in my Sensation & Perception
class for years because it works very well and allows the students to
generate follow-up experiments in fairly short order. I had it distributed
at the FUN workshop in Pomona (because I thought everyone had to contribute
something). All it requires are some composite images that can be found
online (or generated by many students with software available in many
campus computer labs) and some red-green glasses (you can get paper
versions for pennies each).
You can contact me off list for the instructions I submitted to the
workshop all those years ago.
