Where does my stuff really come from?
In this lesson, students gain an understanding into global supply chains and the life cycle of products, to work out the impact of products on people and the environment.
The lesson includes real world examples that students can relate to, such as the iphone and trainers by Adidas. The lesson culminates in a task where students research and complete a life cycle analysis of a given product and material, for example cotton, as part of a pair of levi’s. There is a second task where students make improvements to the design and processing of their product to reduce its impact on the environment.
Included are modelling examples, videos and student worksheets.
