This Geography lesson focuses on tea, and builds learners’ understanding of hydrology, climate change, and of how human and physical processes interact to influence environments and the climate.​

Through a focus on sustainable food production, students will  be able to reflect on how all of us rely on effective functioning of natural systems for our food and livelihoods.​

The activity focuses on learning through developmental group work, a constructivist approach to learning that is directed by learners themselves.​

The resource is available online as a Lessson Kit and and the accompanying My Next Fairtrade Adventure’ films in two parts. There are separate films for Key Stages 2, 3 and 4.

In the films, Tayna, a student from North London, travels to Kenya to find out how climate change is affecting tea farmers and how Fairtrade can tackle some of the effects.​

The Key Stage 2 film was Awarded Highly Commended Award at the Geographical Association awards in 2017.​
