Global Grocer...where does your food come from?

Geography Theme: Movement

Ideas, fads, goods, resources, and communication all travel distances. This theme studies movement and migration across the planet.

Assignment:

Choose five of your favorite produce items to place in your shopping cart. Keep track of the items you selected.

Where did each  item most likely come from?

After you check out, what percentage of your purchases were imported from other countries?

What are some of the consequences of purchasing food that has traveled great distances to reach the consumer (food miles)?
