Cotton – Geography Of Socks

I was challenged by my sister to produce a resource about socks, challenge accepted and here it is! 馃榾

This booklet takes the students through how their simple socks are related to geography and the world. After a brief history of socks, they investigate where and how cotton is produced, and the production line from farmer to customer. Focusing primarily on factories in LEDCs and the working conditions, Fairtrade is examined to see how farmers are being helped with their cotton crops and how cotton works as an economic activity.

A range of individual and group activities are incorporated within this booklet, including, gathering research from print and video, drawing a story board, annotating maps, their thoughts and ideas, choropleth maps and word fills.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
