Strand 3 Performance Objective #5

Create a fabric reference guide consisting of natural/synthetic fibers and woven/knit fabrics.

Career Connections:

  • Textile Chemist

Materials:

  • Fabric Samples (Natural and Synthetic fibers, and different fabric types)...see the assignments for specific fabrics needed. (I cut the samples into 1 1/2" squares.) It helps if all the fabrics are in piles to pass out to the students (of you can put them in baggies for each student to pick up.)
  • Several staples to pass around the room.

Students will identify natural and synthetic fibers and understand the characteristics of each. Students will create a fabric reference guide consisting of natural/synthetic fibers and woven/knit fabrics.

Instructional Procedures:
Hand out the note packets to students. Using the power point go over the information on natural/synthetic fibers. Hand out to the students samples of each fiber they can staple in their packets. Hand out the note packet and fabrics fro identification. Show the power point of the different fabrics and students will guess which fabric is correct and staple it in their packets.
