Investigating where the products we buy come from

This lesson is part of Understanding Trade, a Geography unit designed for students in upper KS2 (Y5-6).

First the presentation helps students understand what trade is and introduces the concepts of imports and exports. It does this by linking these ideas to every day products we buy. It also looks at the different scales of trade – local, national and international.

The activity then challenges students to match up products with statements about the company which makes them and where they are produced/manufactured.

Easier – Match the products to the statements (on stickers)
Harder – Match the products to the statements (written)

Extension – Students complete a cloze procedure paragraph about trade.
