Sixth graders in Lindsay Ilg’s Family and Consumer Sciences course at Ronkonkoma Middle School recently sewed face masks from scratch. The students used fabric squares, T-shirts, and old pillowcases to create comfortable face masks to wear for the new year. Each day in class, the students made progress by pinning, cutting, measuring and sewing their project together. Once the elastic was securely fastened, they were able to start wearing them.
