Have you ever thought about who made your clothes?

Year 5 have been thinking about this question in our new Unit of Inquiry. We brought in a favourite piece of clothing and looked at the labelling. It tells us where it was made and what it is made from but not who made it. We saw a video that showed us that a lot of clothing in Australia is actually made overseas in countries like China, Cambodia and Bangladesh. We wonder why this is and if it is a problem. Are the people who make our clothes paid fairly? Do children make clothes in some countries? We are hoping to find out some answers to these questions. Here are some posters we have made to promote our question.

  2. I thought about who has made my clothes… How carefully people must’ve made it… Then I realised it was a machine that made it… LOL 😀 😀

  8. hi i am in england and we are really happy that other year 5s are blogging!This is such a fun topic LOL!!!!!!!!!!! goodbye 😀

  9. I love this topic so much. It is really fun and interesting. When we were first asked to bring our clothes in I was like “what is going on, how could this relate to our UOI topic”. but I soon found out.

    The questions we have being asking are ones I have never thought about before. I have really enjoyed getting the answers.

    Cant wait to see what we do next!
