Students will identify and recognize various types of fabric construction.
Knowledge of Fabric Construction (woven, knit, and non-woven)
Students will identify basic weaves (plain, twill and satin), define knits, and identify non-woven fabrics.
Hand out the worksheet on Fabric Construction. Hand out samples of each type of fabric. Students will identify and staple the samples onto the spaces provided. The teacher can pass out more examples as needed.
Talk about the three types of weaves. Hand out the weaving assignment, and yarn. (I have cardboard for each student with notches in it.) Students will weave samples of each type, and make a page for their portfolio.
Have students work with a partner.
