Basic Needs - Clothes

Clothes are one of the basic needs of a human being. Before clothes were made man used to cover himself with skin of animals or bark of tree or with leaves.




Need for clothes: 
- They cover our body
- Protect us from heat, cold, rain and dust

Different types of clothes:
We were clothes according to the seasons.
- In summer it is hot. So we wear light cotton clothes to keep us cool.
- In the cold winter season we wear woolen clothes
- In the wet rainy season we wear raincoats and gumboots to protect us from the rain.

Different materials:
- Cotton clothes are made from cotton grown on cotton plants.
- Woolen clothes are made from wool that we get from sheep
- Raincoats and gumboots are made of plastic and rubber.

Uniform:
People wear clothes as per their profession. They are called uniforms.
eg: A police wears khaki colored uniform. A nurse wears a white uniform.
Students also wear Uniforms in school.

Care:
- We should wear clean and washed clothes.
- Clothes should be washed with soap and water.
- Clothes should be ironed to make them look neat.
- Specific delicate material clothes need dry cleaning at the laundry.
