Small group discussion:What does this video show us about McDonalds and the world?

GlobalizationThis is a complex term that has many parts to it.

The part that we are focusing on is how countries have become connected through buying and selling products.

Think about the McDonalds video. Where was the food grown that was served in the same restaurant chain around the world?VocabularyWhat are the three sectors of the market we have talked about?

These sectors are also referred to as the primary, secondary, and tertiary sectors.

Pri- can sometimes be a prefix that means first.Sec- can sometimes be a prefix that means second.Ter- can sometimes be a prefix that means third.

Using this information, which sector would be agriculture, industry, and services?Globalization ProjectToday we are going to begin working on a project that involves the market sectors we have discussed and globalization.

You will create a map that shows the path that goods go through to go from raw materials to on the store shelf ready for purchase. Step One Clothing InfoChoose one article of clothing (Shirts, jackets, and coats are easiest to see the tag on.)

From the tag, you need to record where it was made and what materials it is made out of.Also write down the city you purchased the item in.

Work together with a person to help get the information from the tag.Step Two Major Producers of Raw MaterialsEach table has been provided a list of major raw material producers.

There are a few options for each material.

Consider where your clothing item was made, and choose the most likely option for where the material was from.Step Three Making your MapChoose a color that will represent your primary sector (agriculture).Use that color to outline the country where your raw material was from.Label the country with the country name and the material.

Repeat these steps for secondary and tertiary sectors with a new color. Follow the directions on the worksheet for labeling these countries.If you finish early, use a laptop to finish researching your statistics.

Step Four Write a reflection Option one: SummaryHow are all three countries on your map connected and what does this show you about your clothing?

Option two: Claim paragraphWhy do geographers use market sectors (agriculture, industry, and service) to label countries as more or less developed?
