Product Description
Social Studies World Exports Project
Appropriate for grades 6-8 & Homeschool

This is a group research project designed to help students look into the world trade market for 6 specific commodities. They will study where these resources come from and what it takes to get something as simple as a chocolate bar on the grocery store shelf. This project with all the extras will easily take 2 weeks in your classroom to complete with many options for how to present the research your students find.

After teaching a unit on world trade and commerce, I decided to create a project for my sixth grade classroom dealing with how specific exports we enjoy every day are purchased, transported and consumed. My students were very interested in the fair trade movement and thus this project was born to look into six of the biggest exports with unfair trade markets across the world: coffee, cocoa, bananas, gold, sugar and tea.

We decided to do a parent night and have student present what they learned about fair and direct trade items. We were able to share our 30 second commercials and give our informational powerpoints with the other 6th grade classrooms and the parents as well.

Besides this file, you may require:
     ☆Computers/iPads for the students to work on
     ☆Optionally your own example of a powerpoint or commercial or poster
