FOSS Module Summary

Module Summary – Fabric (2nd Ed.)


Fabric, a material so often taken for granted, makes a fascinating study for early-childhood students. In the Fabric Module students are introduced to a wide variety of fabrics in a systematic way, so that they become familiar with fabrics' properties, discover what happens when they are tested, and discover how they interact with other materials, including water.


  • Develop a curiosity and interest in the physical world around them.
  • Observe and describe the properties of different fabrics.
  • Compare different fabrics to discover how they are alike and how they are different.
  • Observe interactions of fabric with water and other substances.
  • Communicate observations.
  • Acquire the vocabulary associated with the properties of fabric.
