Fabric is a technology that is all around us. Whether it keeps us warm during the winter months or sends a warning to speeding motorists as a flag, fabric is important to all of us. Every fabric has unique properties that are specifically designed for a purpose.
A HUGE thank you goes to everyone who donated fabric. Thank you!
What better way to see how all the different types of fabric are made than to take it apart? Kindergartners first learned that fabric can be made from animals (sheep's wool or silkworm's silk), plants (cotton or jute), or oil. Then they got a piece of burlap to see how it was put together through a weaving process. They noticed there were threads that went vertically and others than went horizontally. Putting two and two together, they learned how to weave the threads together to then make their own piece of fabric!
