Loreto Grammar School – Consequence wheel

Location: James Street, Omagh, BT78 1DL


Entry Date: 20 November 2017

Year 8 pupils used a learning tool from Oxfam called a ‘consequence wheel’ to consider the implications of buying different types of products. Starting with an assumption that ‘local is best’, pupils became more aware of the complexity of global markets. They explored the impact of growing food on the environment and examined how the choices we make as consumers in this country can influence things. They visited a local supermarket to compare fair trade goods with their standard equivalents, using criteria such as price and food miles.

For guidance on using consequences wheels, see page 14 of Oxfam’s Global Citizenship in the Classroom: A guide for teachers.
