Which Fabric? What Colour?
In 'Which Fabric?', children will be given the opportunity
to choose suitable clothes to dress up an online doll for a particular season.
By reading information about different types of material, children will be able
to make informed decisions about which type of fabric might be more suitable
for winter or summer, and make selections for either a girl or a boy. Children
can then review their selections and decide if they are the most suitable ones.
They can then move onto the next level where they get to choose
a character playing a particular sport. Then they can decide which listed material
would be ideal to dress the character in. When the correct answer is selected
and the characters are seen in full, the children can input reasons for their
choices and print out their notes and the image.
Within 'What Colour?', children learn about the how a colour wheel works
and why it's useful in marketing and producing clothes.
They will then have the opportunity to examine three photographs
of people at work and select a reason why they might wear particular colours.
