This is a free-enterprise project that teaches the marketing process, using basic sewing skills.
Materials as described in the attachments.
Students love this free-enterprise experience. They will need to be taught basic sewing skills prior to this experience. Instructions for the chill ties should be given to the students to incorporate in their marketing department. The instructions are: To rehydrate this chill tie, spread the crystals evenly throughout the tie. Soak the chill tie in cold water for 20-25 minutes. After soaking, set the chill tie on a towel to drain excess water. When it is hydrated, the chill tie can be placed around the neck or forehead. It will help keep you cool an entire day. To rehydrate the chill tie, place it in cold water for about 5 minutes. Before storing the chill tie, dehydrate it completely. This will take approximately seven days.
Students must know the basics of sewing prior to this experience.
Students will learn how a free-enterprise system works.
