In this unit, students will investigate different types of solvents and their effects upon ink and dye solubility in order to create designs for a student artifact. They will explore basic chemistry principles and mathematics to design and create a t-shirt, book mark, class quilt, or other artifact that will inspire nonviolence in their community. In this service-learning lesson, students will share their message of nonviolence with their school community. Students could have a display in their library or cafeteria. Students might also make a power point presentation or short video to share their message.
