The Big Idea

Clothing has changed over time, including that worn by athletes competing in
sporting events. Students will learn how sporting attire was different in the past
and make connections to the uniforms they see today.


  • Learn about golfer, Violet Pooley-Sweeny
  • Compare and contrast uniforms worn today with those of the past
  • Design their own “Uniform of the Future”
