Teaching science isn't always interesting, and it often doesn't produce something amazing you can take home with you. Covid has us separated in the classroom, many materials unsharable. Tie-dying with rubber gloves, protective eyewear (and masks) will allow us to feel a little more normal -because science is supposed to have protective gear- while making something beautiful. Students will make predictions, experiment on different types of materials, use differing preparations of the cloth, and understand the reactive process on different materials before creating their own masterpieces. As an at-risk classroom made up of students primarily from low-income families - doing something cool at school where you get to keep the product (pillowcases and napkins/headscarves/etc) can make going to school worth it. While my students don't need these experiences every day to stay engaged, bringing a positive piece of school home to their families will also strengthen the bond between school and home for the individual and for their siblings. The positive vibes between school and home can never be too great. As an end project we will create a full sheet, tie-dye banner as a legacy piece for the year the kids studied through covid.
