A teaching pack about fair trade, literacy and football
Tom Palmer is an author who brings sport (mainly football) into his children's books. This Fair Play pack is based on Tom's trip to Ghana where he was doing research for one of his books, Foul Play 3: Off Side - which is a detective story exploring murky issues like people trafficking and hostile takeovers . It would be ideal to use this pack at the same time as reading Off Side with your students.
The pack has a series of activities for Key Stages 2 and 3 (ages 7-14) exploring life and football in Ghana, cocoa farming, the chocolate journey, fair trade and child trafficking. A really great resource to use during Fairtrade Fortnight, which is likely to fully engage your students.
The pack is downloadable free as a PDF from Tom Palmer's website, which also has lots of interesting background information on his books and his trip to Ghana.
