A Soccer Ball, Pencil and Jeans. What do they have in common?

Posted on

They all have a product Lifecycle! The students at Rossland Summit School discovered that some of their everyday “stuff” has a unique and sometimes complex process of how they are made into products that we use everyday. Groups of students researched their product item starting with their raw materials and then to the manufacturing stage, as well as how it is  transported to us and finally what we can do once we are done with the product. Some groups made posters along with their presentations to the class. Other groups developed a skit about their product. Creativity was flowing for this lesson, along with the awareness that all items, big or small, have a complex lifecycle.
