White Gold - Cotton
Our entry is over planting, harvesting, ginning,
and classifying cotton. It also explains how cotton is
turned into thread and fabric. It is educationally
beneficial for those interested in where their clothes
comes from and how they are woven or knitted into fabric.
U.S. history teachers can also use this site to show the difference
from Eli Whitney's cotton gin compared to the huge modern
gins of today. Children growing up in cities may have an
interest in real farms and small town life.
