TNCs ‘ Annotated map of a product’

In today’s class we will create an ‘Annotated Map of a product’. You will start in class and complete for homework over the weekend. It is due in on Tues 6th Sept.

Choose one product with a minimum number of components ( eg: a specific sneaker model, chocolate, a lipstick, chopsticks, etc.) and create an annotated map showing where the material used in the product is from, where the  parts were made and where it was assembled. Annotations must be 10-15 words, explaining WHAT the part is and HOW it is produced. Minimum of 12 annotations should be included and all annotations should be cited.


Your map must include:

  • The company headquarters
  • at least 3 raw materials and their origin
  • at least two assembly factories
  • where do they sell products? which countries? continents? or is it worldwide?
  • At least two distribution centers
  • At least 4 transportation routes
  • A key
  • A title
