Bananas and cocoa beans

A basketful of fair trade activities

KS2: ages 7-11PDF
GLP

This cross-curricular teaching book focuses on fair trade. The book includes activities suitable for upper primary teaching, and looks at how we are linked to the rest of the world through our shopping… buying bananas and chocolate, for example. The book introduces pupils to the idea of fair trade, and farmers getting a fair price for their crops.

The activities in the book can be used in isolation, but work well as a series. Each lesson gives informative background reading, as well as ideas for extension activities, including writing frames, discussion groups and reading material. There are also black and white images and pupil worksheets included in the book.
