Understanding that all products have a supply chain

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

The presentation first asks students to think about how the products we buy arrive in the shops. It then introduces the concept of supply chains. To explain this concept, students look at the processes involved in the production of milk.

There are two activities:

Group Activity:

Students sort and sequence four mixed up supply chains including those of bananas, T-shirts, bookshelves and coffee.

Individual Activity:

Students sequence the supply chains of bananas, T-shirts, bookshelves and coffee.

– Students sequence supply chains (first and last process given)
Harder – Students sequence supply chains (no clues)
