Symbol-supported resources to help develop an understanding of Fairtrade
Fairtrade is a global movement that strives to make trade fair. Fairtrade has an important role in supporting a fairer deal for farmers and strengthening connections between producers and consumers.
This resource pack has been developed together with The Fairtrade Foundation, the organisation through which Fairtrade is represented in the UK.
These resources have been designed to support the teaching of the topic Fairtrade whilst helping to foster the importance of compassion and becoming socially responsible citizens.
Resources include an information book, which explores how Fairtrade supports farmers and helps build awareness of the global implications of the choices we make. Comprehension activities are included, which encourage learners to demonstrate their understanding. A selection of sequencing, matching and mapping activities are available, through which learners can explore the origins of Fairtrade products and understand how and where they are produced. Maths activities provide opportunities for learners to practise a range of key skills. Additional resources have been created, such as games and colouring. Teaching aids, including word cards and a glossary are also available.
The information books in this pack are also available in presentation format to be viewed via a white board. An interactive quiz is also available as a presentation to engage learners in the classroom.The presentation books and quiz can be amended within Standard, Pro or Plus InPrint 3 subscription tiers using Presentation Export.
