Fabric is a technology that every one of us encounters on a daily basis. Whether it's part of the clothes we wear, or the furniture we sit on, fabric has unique properties depending on the purpose for which it is used. Kindergartners will be exploring many types of fabric, learning key vocabulary that can describe the properties of not just fabric, but many other materials engineers use to develop the technologies we all use.
Welcome back from Spring Break! Kindergartners are focusing on the importance of sorting materials by their properties. Each team of students had the opportunity to sort fabrics according to how they thought they should be sorted. Some groups sorted by color, others by texture, and others by how light interacts with them! How neat!
