To help Year 5 develop their understanding of Fairtrade, we used role play. Some of the class were buyers and the rest were farmers. The aim of the farmers was to sell their tea for as much as they could so they could have enough money to survive (for food, bills, medical costs and education). The buyers had to try and buy the tea at a low cost so they could make more profit. We soon realised it wasn’t fair and Fairtrade was the best way to trade.
