Study of Fabric

Dear Parents,

Our class is beginning a study of fabric.  We will be looking at the properties of fabric (its color, texture, absorbency, stiffness), how fabric is put together, how it can be taken apart, how pieces of fabric can be connected, how fabric changes in water, how it gets dirty and clean again, and how the color can be permanently changed.

We will be focusing on the scientific thinking processes of observing, communicating, and comparing.  You can add to your child's experience by using these processes to investigate fabric at home.  For example, look around the house and label all the things you find that are made of fabric.  Discuss the properties of fabrics that make them good for a particular use.  Compare articles of clothing.  Why is one jacket better to wear in winter weather, another in summer, and another in the rain?  Set up a laundry station so your child can hand wash and dry a few articles of clothing, dish towels, etc.

We need your help to make this module successful.  If you have scraps of fabric at home that you are willing to donate to the class, please send them to class as soon as possible.  They will be used for fabric collages and various sewing projects.  Thanks!
