Group Time Thoughts…
Introduce this unit by bring in several pairs of eyeglasses, Braille books, picture books on eye parts, and an eye chart. You may want to ask an optometrist to come for a visit. During group time you may want to introduce the fact that we all have different shaped and colored eyes. You can chart the different eye colors and pretend to be blind by blindfolding a child and showing them that eyes play an importance in our life’s. Introduce Braille books this allow an understanding of how the blind carry out their life’s. Perhaps you can contact your local 4-H to ask if they implement a program called Leadership Dogs. This is a service where dogs are raised to provide aide to the blind. (Seeing eye Dogs)
