PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This supplemental lesson on the Columbian Exchange has shocked my students for four years into remembering the Columbian Exchange, especially the effects of Smallpox on the Native Americans. The teacher slyly infects students with "Smallpox" at the beginning of the lesson, and a blacklight will reveal at the end who was "infected". This is the lesson that my former students from years back see me and ask, "Hey Mrs. Andersen, are you still infecting students with Smallpox?" I always look forward to teaching this lesson year after year!
If teaching the Columbian Exchange is not part of your objectives, this lesson can be modified to teach about the healthy habit of washing hands! (You never know what's lurking around on them!)

Very fun way to make history come alive. This time the teachers get their students sick (in the form of glow in the dark paint) and has students leaving the classroom excited.

Product Questions & Answers

On  September 11, 2013Go Fourth With Mrs V (TpT Seller) asked:
I purchased some glow in the dark paint, but when I tried it out at my house, the paint is not washable. I.e... parents will be very upset when kids come back with glow in the dark paint all over their uniforms. I wish I could do this, but I have not found washable glow in the dark paint/ink yet. I teach 4th grade, and I know if I rub lotion, the kids will immediately wipe their hands on their pants... Ideas?

On  October 20, 2013Kim Andersen answered:
I'm sorry I haven't answered you sooner! I just missed this question. Hmmm...I haven't had this problem, but I can definitely see it happening. Perhaps you can use glow in the dark rubber stamp ink somehow, or instead of having the glow happen on their hands, you can put some glowing handprints on some of their desks before the lesson, and make them think that it was on their hands.

Do you need an actual black light to complete the activity, or are the paper visuals sufficient to illustrate the concept?
