• Resource Overview

    Enjoy this immersive group activity on the exploration of yarn in textiles.

    Textiles students will have a ‘ball’ with this comprehensive resource. It begins with students entering the room and receiving a ‘Have a Yarn’ Card and Fact File. Then after breezing through the ‘Have a Yarn’ PowerPoint students can work in small groups to fill in their Fact File on their yarn type. From there students can swap answers moving around the room to gain understanding on the other types of yarn and their characteristics and properties. The goal is to have their ‘Have a Yarn’ Fact File complete by the end of the lesson.

    To check student understanding, the next lesson could be dedicated to the ‘Have a Yarn’ recall questions. Teacher’s Suggested Answers are also included so that you can mark their responses in class if you like.

    Pack includes:

    • 13-slide Have a Yarn PowerPoint
    • 13- double-sided Have a Yarn Cards
    • 6-page Have a Yarn Fact File Student Worksheet
    • 9-page Have a Yarn Recall Questions
    • Teacher Instructions
