Third Grade Science Curriculum Bolstered by Eye Opening Visitor     

BB&N third graders were thrilled to welcome ophthalmologist and retina specialist Fina Barouch to their classrooms this week as part of their study of eyes and vision. Barouch, mother to a BB&N third and seventh grader, discussed eye anatomy, eye myths, eye problems, and the science behind eye exams during her visit.

The visit complimented the students' curriculum with real world intel on the subject, and also tied into the class' study of understanding differences through such concepts as nearsightedness versus farsightedness.
