National Geographic Education: Global Closet Calculator

1/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Use this National Geographic website to open your eyes to how your consumer goods connect you with others around the globe. This interactive is divided into two parts. First you need to empty your closet, read the labels to find out where your clothes were made, enter the countries, and the game plots them on the map for you.  After you straighten your closet, you can play the next part of the game where you get to make decisions about how products that you use are made. Your choices have different ramifications, and you might be surprised that what you think is the right choice might not necessarily be the best choice.
