Developed in conjunction with leading primary and secondary teachers, the free Learn About Wool kits include multimedia presentations, fabric and fibre samples, factsheets and posters. The extensive classroom resources describe in detail the on-farm production, processing, marketing and fashion aspects of Australia's natural fibre.
Whether investigating wool as a material for a fashion project, exploring its rich and colourful history or investigating the way modern wool producers manage the natural environment, the Learn About Wool kit contains material to engage and excite students across all ages and learning areas.
The kit has already been classroom-tested by many teachers.
"The Learn About Wool kit will enable me to explore how wool is produced and what happens after it leaves the farm with my students. The samples will enable them to touch and feel the product as they learn.
"The broad range of factsheets gives me the confidence to talk about different aspects and the additional images and videos on the USB add an extra dimension to my teaching. The kit is an excellent resource for kinder to Year 10 students," said Mrs Peta Copps, Infants teacher, St Matthews Catholic School Mudgee.
Large fabric samples within the kit allow children to feel the softness of Australian wool and are supported by text and graphics explaining the many potential users of the fibre. Large posters explain the journey wool takes from the sheep's back through both woollen and worsted processing to the end user.
Two sets of extensive factsheets contain significant industry information in easy-to-digest graphics and text. The Workboot Series book "Wool" is included as an informative resource developed by the Kondinin Group and continues to be popular with students of all ages. Additional information, videos and PDF resources are contained within a USB drive which is included.
The kit builds on Australian Wool Innovation's education portfolio which continues to reconnect new generations of Australians with our country's most famous fibre. With tens of thousands of Sam the Lamb colouring books and posters distributed yearly, The Workboot series on Wool in school libraries and the Wool4Skool competition now engaging more than 1000 students annually, the message of living naturally and choosing wool is reaching many young Australians.
