Born in New York in 1942, Patricia Bath is the first African American female doctor to receive a medical patent. She invented the Laserphaco Probe for the treatment of cataracts in 1986. With this amazing book, The Doctor with an Eye for Eyes, we had a great time learning about eyes and the amazing Patricia Bath.

Materials Needed

This awesome book is a great story about the life of Patricia Bath. It is easy to read with great rhymes and fun illustrations. Early in her life, Patricia feels she can do anything that boys can do and with the encouragement from her family, she does. After receiving a chemistry set as a gift, she quickly discovers her passion in this area, she focuses on becoming a doctor to help the poor and sick. After discovering that blind black patients outnumbered white blind patients, she goes on a quest, researching and learning about lasers which ultimately leads her to invent the Laserphaco Probe. Even though she is met with many challenges along the way, her determination and focus is a great example for all kids to follow.  To go alongside this book, I have created some timeline cards.

Patricia Bath Timeline Cards

All up there are 23 timeline cards that describe different events and notable achievements that happened throughout her life. These are great printed out on white paper and then laminated for durability.

The platypus is one of Australia’s unique creatures. It is a shy mammal that is hard to see in the wild. To learn more about these strange animals, I created these fun, platypus life cycle cards.

Materials Needed:

About the Platypus

When the platypus was first discovered, drawings and live specimens were sent back to Europe for study. Many British scientists believed the animal was a joke.

But the platypus is real. It is a unique semi-aquatic mammal found only in eastern Australian un the states of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.  This animal has a duck-bill, a beaver-like tail, otter-like fur, webbed feet and it lays eggs. Australia has two mammals that are classed as monotremes, one of which is the platypus, the other being the echidna.

This nocturnal animals who sleep for up to 14 hours a day, can live for more than 12 years in the wild. They are also excellent swimmers who close their eyes and ears when under water. They use their sense of electroreception to dig up muddy river beds with their bill to find food. They use the pouches in their cheeks to carry their prey to the surface of the water where they then proceed to eat it.

On the ankle of the male, is a spur that contains venom that is powerful enough to kill small animals. It is not lethal to humans, though it will cause a severe pain that lasts a few weeks.

Your kids will love learning more about the life cycle of these creatures with this printable pack. It is aimed at children ages 2 – 8.
