Trade KS2 - Highest value exports of countries around the world

This resource is designed for upper KS2. It is part of a wider unit called Understanding Trade.

The presentation introduces the concept of highest value exports. It then draws a link between a country’s highest value export and its human and physical resources (e.g. transport links, oil reserves). Four example countries and their highest value export are then looked at in more detail.

In the activity, children are challenged to identify the highest value exports and GDP/capita of countries around the world using Google Maps/atlases and an online map. This research is then linked to the concept of developed vs developing countries.

The activity is differentiated three ways:

LA – Children identify highest value exports of 25 countries
MA – Children identify highest value exports and GDP/capita of 25 countries
UA – Children identify highest value exports and GDP/capita of 30 countries
