Exploring Australian Approaches to Producing Cotton, Timber and Wool

Exploring Australian Approaches to Producing Cotton, Timber and Wool

This 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.
It includes sections on fibre production, what it is, what it comprises, what it affects, its potential impacts on living things in a variety of ecosystems, and who and what produces cotton, wood and wool products for people in Australian and overseas.
