In honor of geography awareness week, check out this tool called the Global Closet Calculator. Aimed for youth or use by teachers with classes, discover interdependence and globalization concepts. The interactive “quiz” walks them through their closets to determine (generally) where they might come from, all over the global. It critically reflects on the values and points of view, bringing more than just awareness as to how everything we have in our “closet” comes to be.  Offers good discussion potentials on source of the materials, various labor practices, and the potential implications of their decisions in purchases.
