Dr. Patricia Bath
We continued our unit on Black History today and were excited to learn about Dr. Patricia Bath! Dr. Bath was the first African American to receive a patent for a medical invention. She changed the world of ophthalmology when she invented the Laserphaco Probe which is used to treat cataracts. In her honor we talked about what a trip to the eye doctor may be like. We even had a little fun with the machine used to check and correct eye sight.
Later we made eye charts from mixing two colors together. A great activity for our fine motor development, building color mixing understanding, and following directions.
