Where does stuff come from?

Today we have had a quick investigation about where some of the food in our lunchboxes and things in our classroom are made.  We plotted this on a map to see some of the different countries that are producing what we eat and use.  A lot of the food packets we were eating were made in Australia.  a lot of the things we use in our classroom were made in China.

I want everyone to have a look in the pantry at home and check for the labels that tell us where are food is being produced.  I also want you to talk at home to find out what it means if a product says made from local and imported ingredients.

Good luck and I will be interested in your research.
