Site Leader: Please make sure that everyone has a partner. Part of this activity involves using a world map. Please be sure each pair has access to a world map before beginning. You may print a map here.
Take five minutes to examine the labels on your clothes and other items in the room. In the remaining 10 minutes, you and a partner should use a world map to locate the countries where your items are produced. Discuss your findings and what they reveal about the patterns of location and production.
