FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “The Doctor with an Eye for Eyes Patricia Bath Book Activity”

by My Happy Place
Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

This follow-up activity to Julia Finley Mosca’s The Doctor with an Eye for Eyes: The Story of Dr. Patricia Bath, allows students to reflect on the life of Patricia Bath while making text-to-self connections. With the included worksheet, students draw and write about a time that they showed perseverance.

This activity is best completed after a class discussion about Dr. Bath and the obstacles she faced growing up and entering into her career. The worksheet is included with two different line styles/sizes. Choose the page that will work best for your students. Additional lined pages are included if you wish to have children write more than will fit on the worksheet.
