Authentic Project Ideas – Supply Chain

The above photo was taken in our local car dealership earlier this week.  When we questioned why these cars were on the floor, it was explained that the cars were selling faster than they could get them, so they have no stock to display on the floor.

Currently, there is a shortage of many things.  This could lead to many driving questions and authentic projects about the supply chain. Why is there a delay getting many goods right now?

Is it a worker shortage?  Material shortage?  Shipping problems?

For younger students this could be a simple authentic project about supply and demand.  Sometimes we have to wait for what we want.  And if the supply is low the cost can be higher.

And I am still waiting for the Legos I ordered for my grandsons on Amazon a month ago!
