Continuing with our FairTrade topic, today we are going to try and develop our understanding of what ‘trade’ is. There is an attached video which is a little song to try and help explain this.
The children should then make a list of products and items that either they or their parents buy in a week. Go through the list, where do these things come from? Are they grown or made here in the UK? They may wish to use the computer to research where some of these things come from.
Their task will be to colour in the World Map and then plot and label where some of the products on the list they made come from. If they really want to show off they good look up some FairTrade products and plot them on their too!
