Natural Fibres

This unit provides students with the opportunity to investigate the materials used to create rope and other First Nations resources and to apply this knowledge when creating their own sustainably designed products. Be sure to explore the films in links in the Tools and Technology Discovery Map

Cross Curriculum Priorities

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures

A_TSICP1 First Nations communities of Australia maintain a deep connection to, and responsibility for, Country/Place and have holistic values and belief systems that are connected to the land, sea, sky and waterways.

A_TSIC3 The First Peoples of Australia (Aboriginal Peoples) belong to the world’s oldest continuous cultures. First Nations Australians demonstrate resilience in the maintenance, practice and revitalisation of culture despite the many historic and enduring impacts of colonisation, and continue to celebrate and share the past, present and future manifestations of their cultures.

A_TSIP3 The significant and ongoing contributions of First Nations Australians and their histories and cultures are acknowledged locally, nationally and globally.

Sustainability

SD1 Sustainably designed products, environments and services aim to minimise the impact on or restore the quality and diversity of environmental, social and economic systems.

SD3 Sustainable design requires an awareness of place, past practices, research and technological developments, and balanced judgements based on projected environmental, social and economic impacts.
