Investigating key Australian fibre production practices in the cotton, timber and wool sectors

Back to results

This unit consists of a pdf resource and two supporting videos. It has five inquiry teaching sequences about how fibres are produced, processed and brought to consumers. The unit encourages students to investigate new and existing production practices used to produce cotton, timber and wool products. Students are given an insight into ways primary producers in the cotton or wool sectors and foresters in the wood sector produce; process and bring their products to consumers.

We need your feedback. When you have completed this unit please tell us what you think via the online survey external link. We will regularly update the units and your feedback will help PIEFA keep the resources current and relevant to teachers.
