Fabric samples are often introduced in the form of items of clothing, and this can cause confusion for children. This convenient pack contains squares of different types of fabric for use in a variety of investigations and experiments. 50cm square samples of wool, silk, nylon, wadding and polycotton, and 50cm x 70cm samples of breathable nylon, PVC coated nylon and fibrepile (fleece).
Includes teacher's notes suggesting activities related to units in the schemes of work.
