Activity Description:

Threads in the fabric in Fibre to Fabric - Class 6 Science Experiment

The experiment aims to observe the structure of fabric threads using a magnifying lens. By pulling out threads from the fabric and examining them closely, the participants can explore the finer details of the threads.

The experiment also involves scratching the end of a thread and attempting to insert it into the eye of a needle to understand the challenges associated with threading.

Required Items:

  1. Magnifying lens
  2. Fabric
  3. Needle

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Take the fabric and examine it using a magnifying lens. Observe its overall structure and appearance.
  2. Carefully pull out threads one by one from the fabric. Observe the threads individually, noting any differences or similarities.
  3. Select one thread and scratch its end gently using a fingernail or a small tool.
  4. Use the magnifying lens to observe the scratched end of the thread. Pay attention to any changes in the structure or appearance.
  5. Take a needle and attempt to insert the thread into the eye of the needle.
  6. Observe and note down the level of difficulty experienced in threading the needle with the selected thread.

Experiment Observations:

  • The fabric is made up of thread-like structures called yarn.
  • Yarn consists of thin strands that are separated from the end of the yarn.
  • The thin strands are referred to as fibers.
  • Each fabric is composed of yarn, which in turn is made up of fibers.
  • Cotton fabric is made from cotton yarn derived from cotton fibers.


  • Handle the fabric and the threads with care to avoid damage.
  • Use a magnifying lens safely and avoid focusing it on direct sunlight to prevent eye strain or injury.
  • Be cautious while using the needle to prevent accidental pricks or injuries.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

Through this experiment, you will learn about the different types of fabric and their common uses. It will help you understand the variety of materials that can be made into fabric and how they are used in everyday life.

Additionally, you will develop observational skills and learn to classify items based on their fabric composition.
