How can we encourage more people to shop locally? (Part 1)

This lesson is part 5 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Why is the local economy important to society?

Students apply what they have learnt about the local economy in an active citizenship project, creating a piece of communication –  a blog post, leaflet, poster or letters – to encourage more people to shop locally. In this lesson, they focus on planning their active citizenship and working collaboratively in a group to start taking action. In the process, they develop their understanding and key Citizenship skills.

Students will work towards answering the following questions:
  1. How can we work collaboratively in an active citizenship task?
  2. Why is it important to encourage more people to shop locally?
  3. How can we communicate our message about shopping locally?
