My students need these supplies to learn about how to create natural dyes from the garden using the crock pots for the hot bath dying method.
“Can you use plants to color clothes?” My students asked me this question after we picked some very colorful flowers in the garden. This question got me thinking about teaching my students all about natural dyes and the history behind it.
I take the students into the outdoor classroom to learn in our garden at least once a month with every class.
I teach Humanities so I get the privilege to teach the whole school! My focus is on science and teaching students about our world in a way that is interesting and meaningful.
My students are so inquisitive and willing to learn, they love learning hands on!
We are a Title I school, and all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most of our students come from low-income families.
These supplies will help my students learn all about the world around them and I hope that you will consider our project! Thank you.
With these materials my students can learn the history behind using plant material to dye clothing and other material. Reading the books that I chose will help me to teach my students about that history. The turmeric and muslin will be used in the experiment of dying the cloth in a hot bath using the crock pots. We will also use plants and flowers from our garden to find out what colors we can come up with.
My students can learn so much from this project and will be able to make a connection to the text by actually completing the dying process.
