The aim of this unit is to help teachers and students in secondary schools investigate how cotton is produced in managed environments and source information and resources about how the characteristics and properties of cotton and cottonseed determine how these products can be used. Students develop knowledge and understandings about how cotton is grown, produced and processed in managed environments. Students also investigate and explain how both cotton and cottonseed oil have certain characteristics and properties that determine how they can be used. Using ‘design and production skills’ students design either a cotton muslin bag or an infused cottonseed oil with a detailed label design that educates consumers about how it was produced.
