Personal Supply Chain

  1. 1. TEACHER MATERIALS PERSONAL SUPPLY CHAIN Purpose Improvements in travel and communication over the last 500 years have led to the interconnection of the four world zones but what does this mean for us today? Students will research an item they use every day in order to understand how this item is made, how long it takes to travel to the area where they live, and how much energy is needed in this process. Process Students will choose an item they use in their daily lives. They will research the raw materials needed to make it and how these raw materials come together to form the finished product. They will also research what kind of transportation is used to get the final product to them and complete a map to mark the places where their item is produced and where it must travel to get to them. Have students use the Big History Research Worksheet to document their work and ensure good research practices. Their research will specifically answer the following questions: 1. What are the raw materials needed for this product? Where are they found? 2. What are the steps involved in making this product? Where does each step in the production take place? 3. What energy is needed to produce this item? Where does that energy come from? 4. What kind of transportation, if any, is needed at each stage of the production process, including getting the finished product to you? After completing the research and filling out the worksheet and map, have students exchange their work with at least one partner. Students will take about 5 minutes to look at their classmates’ work and answer the following questions: 1. What is the most surprising discovery you made in your research? 2. What is the most surprising discovery you see in the work of your classmates? 3. What does this tell you about the importance of interconnection today? BIG HISTORY PROJECT / LESSON 8.2 ACTIVITY
