WHAT IS LEARN ABOUT WOOL?
Learn About Wool education resources are helping teach primary and secondary students about the unique and natural benefits of Australian wool. The extensive classroom resources describe in detail the on-farm production, processing, marketing and fashion aspects of Australia's natural fibre. Whether investigating wool as a material for a fashion project, exploring its rich and colourful history or investigating the way modern wool producers manage the natural environment, the Learn About Wool resources engage and excite students across all ages and learning areas.
As well as being available as an online resource, the free and popular Learn About Wool resource kit – which includes real fibre, yarn and fabric samples, multimedia presentations, factsheets and posters – is still being delivered to schools throughout Australia. The kit was initially launched in 2013 and has proved very popular; it can be ordered through the Learn About Wool kit tab.
