Transcript of Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Sectors

A Reminder... Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Sectors Primary Sector The primary sector of the economy can be classified as the "extractive" industry.

These include the industries that produce or extract raw materials.

Examples Farmers:
Food items are collected as raw materials, such as wheat and milk, are taken from the farm and made into other products such as bread and cheese.

Other industries include the mining industries, such as coal, iron ore or oil, which extract the raw materials from the ground that will be converted into other useful items

Secondary Sector The secondary sector of the economy is comprised of the manufacturing industries.

The manufacturing industries take raw materials and produce products.

Examples Steel can be used to manufacture cars.
Carpenters take wood and make homes furniture and cabinetry.

Not all manufacturing companies manufacture a complete product. Semi-manufacturing companies produce parts to be used in other products that have several stages of production, such as mobile phones. Tertiary Sector The tertiary sector refers to the commercial services that support the production and distribution process, eg insurance, transport, advertising and warehousing.

Finally this is the sector where the product or service is consumed i.e. where retail operates. Lesson Objective: Chain of Production The sectors all work together to create an economic chain of production:

The primary sector gathers the raw materials.

The secondary sectors puts the raw materials to use.

The tertiary sector sells and supports the activities of the other two.

Together these sectors make up the backbone of the modern economy!!!

Examples Many companies will have components of all three sectors.

For example - a diary farmer that makes cheese and ice cream and distributes the products to stores for sale.

Other companies may strictly focus on one particular aspect, such as manufacturing a particular kind of product only. . Task Test Your Neighbour: Reflection: What Have I Learned Today? To understand how Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Sectors are interdependent (one cannot function without the other).

To apply this understanding to a real life example. Write one thing you have learned today on the Post-It note and stick it to the door as you leave! Mr Haiselden's Coffee Machine..

I bought my Coffee Machine from the Electrical Department in Fenwick Canterbury.

Research and draw the Chain of Production from raw materials to end product.

You must describe what happens during each stage (Primary, Secondary, Tertiary) and most importantly how the different sectors work together and are reliant on one another to create the end product.

Can you also think of another example of a product sold at
Fenwick? Draw its Chain of Production.
