Description

This worksheet is perfect for students to take notes while watching the engaging Planet Money T Makes a T Shirt videos on https://apps.npr.org/tshirt/#/title which look at issues of globalization, economy and labor around the world. The videos follow a creation of a t-shirt from a cotton field in Mississippi to factories in Bangladesh and Colombia, cargo shipping to Miami all the way to the consumer. After watching and discussing the videos, students listen to and reflect on two follow-up NPR stories:

https://www.npr.org/sections/money/2013/12/10/247362140/the-afterlife-of-american-clothes
I teach this lesson to my grade 7 SS as part of a larger globalization unit and my students are engaged, riveted, and eager to discuss the issues brought up. It is a great unit to practice listening comprehension as well with the NPR stories.
