The story map Journey of a Product uses a loaf of bread as an example through which to introduce viewers to the concept of economic sectors. With a focus on the UK, the journey begins by looking at a colorful interactive map of land use in Europe before succinctly explaining the difference between goods and services. From there, the bread's journey continues through the primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary sectors of the UK economy, incorporating photographs and zoomable maps highlighting specific locations along the way. Users can navigate through the different sections via the menu at the top. This story map could be used as a visual aid by social studies instructors, particularly in geography or economics, but general audiences curious about the systems that enable them to shop at grocery stores may also find it of interest. Journey of a Product was created by Brendan Conway, a geography teacher at Notre Dame School in Cobham, UK.
