This lesson will help students distinguish differences between the synthetic fibers--nylon, acrylic, polyester, acetate, rayon, and spandex.
Please be familiar with the information that is on the attached note outlines. It also may help to have personal experiences and advice to share concerning each of the synthetic fibers. This information could come from your day-to-day life.
Students do not need to have any prior knowledge of the synthetic fibers in order to complete this lesson.
Students will be able to identify basic fabric samples of the six synthetic fibers. They may also learn different characteristics of each as well as how to take care of them.
Correct the fiber chart for completeness and correctness, making sure that the fiber samples are in the correct spots and the notes have been written in the correct boxes.
