What is Fair Trade?

  • Year Groups: 3, 4
  • Key Stage: KS2

SKU: ESR34CS30005

This three-lesson scheme of work continues the theme of ethical trading by teaching children about fair trade and its importance to farmers and workers in developing countries. Children will find out what fair trade is in contrast to the ways in which traditional trading often traps workers in a cycle of poverty. They will go on to explore ways in which fair trade organisations help not only workers but their local communities too, before thinking about ways in which they can support the fair trade movement.

With lesson plans, slides for the teaching input, differentiated activities and a range of printable resources, this ‘What is Fair Trade?’ scheme will encourage discussion within your class and encourage the children to become more aware of what they buy.
