Discover your global network by completing the "Global Closet Calculator"—a two-part interactive game that introduces the concepts of interdependence and globalization. In the first part, students can see the ways in which their clothes and accessories connect them to people and places around the world. The second part will call on their critical thinking and geographic decision-making skills in an adventurous investigative journey. Students will consider different values and points of view while making a pair of jeans and an MP3 player to earn badges reflecting those choices. Where will your student go?
