About this resource

Eight lesson plans and related activities that support our online game Threads that can be played to introduce the subject of fast fashion. These resources provide a fresh approach to learning about the connections between clothing as an essential part of everyday life, global environmental change and climate and social justice. 

This resource is ideal for teachers to use in the classroom – or families to explore and share. It is easy to use, providing accessible information alongside activities promoting discussion and critical thinking to support the young people of today as they begin to make choices about the clothes they buy and wear.

I would usually teach food or recycling, but this resource has opened my eyes to the importance of clothes and the kids loved it! (Primary Head teacher)
