Introduction to cotton (3-6)

Introduction to cotton (3-6)

For HSIE, Sustainability. This lesson is a great introduction to cotton from growth to end product with least emphasis on spinning and weaving. The lesson touches on how the natural environment has been modified to suit our needs (e.g.land cleared, channels dug to divert water, laser leveling), environmentally friendly practices (e.g. water use recycling) and the end use for a variety of cotton products. There are worksheets and extension activities
