What do you wear on your head? Why you wear hats! Hats provide us with comfort, protection, status, function, and fashion! The Egyptian Pharaohs wore tall hats that signified their royal status. Cowboys wear cowboy hats with stiff brims to keep the rain from falling on their face, to fill from a stream for a drink or a wash, and to keep their head warm. Baseball caps are sports hats used to shade players’ eyes and cool heads during summer ballgames. Sailor hats are part of their uniform. Chef hats keep hair out of food. Fire protection agents and construction workers wear helmets to protect their head. Bikers wear helmets to protect against injury. Kings and Queens wear jewel-studded crowns to impress their guests of their wealth and authority. Hats come in all shapes and sizes and tell us many things!
