8th Grade: Slavery Footprints

posted Jan 20, 2012, 2:47 PM by   [ updated Feb 3, 2012, 11:22 AM ]
In recognition of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, we're going to explore some concepts from this site:

Before the lesson, go to and do the following:
  1. Read the information under "What?  Slaves work for me?"
  2. Take the survey to calculate your slavery footprint.  For some questions, assume you are your parents.  Count your parents' cars, homes, or other property as your own.


In order to spread awareness about this international problem, we will be creating videos discussing specific instances in human trafficking.
