Price of Rice

This activity supports Unit 5_6H: Enquiry in environmental and technological contexts.
Asian countries have been struggling to cope as the cost of rice has reached record levels. The price of the staple crop has risen by as much as 70% during the last year.
In this activity children will decide the reasons why the price of rice might be increasing so rapidly. They will study data from several sources and use this to decide which might be the major reason.
