This product functions as a wall poster that demonstrates the concept of global interdependence by showing the nations around the world that produce resources used in making pencils. It also can be used on a device such as a laptop or ipad, or projected for whole class discussion. Each icon on the map is hyperlinked to a web page or video that explains more about the mining or manufacturing process.
For example, by clicking on the icon in Thailand, you open a short video that shows how rubber is collected and made into erasers. There are ten icons/links.
