The story of wool from farm to product is part of a new learning resourse created by the team at British Wool with the aim of informing school age children from early years up to 11 years old about farming, the British Wool industry and of course sheep!
A curriculum linked learning resource the website is packed full of fun and interesting ways for teachers, parents, grandparents, clubs and organisations to communicate the story of British sheep and the wool industry to children
Speaking of the project a British Wool Spokesperson said: “Each year we receive many hundreds of requests for information about wool, sheep and related subjects. We are very happy to talk about sheep all day long, so we created this section of our website to do just that!
The information has been developed to be used as part of a project using sheep and wool as context, but also to be of use to teachers not wishing to commit to a full project.”
Developed with teachers, the material provided includes: information about British wool, activities which can be used to support learning in a variety of subjects, assembly ideas, classroom display printouts, worksheets, fact sheets, games and online interactive resources for use on whiteboards, personal computers and tablets.
