Fair Trade!

Posted: May 6, 2013 in Uncategorized

Hi everyone 😉

Last week we’ve learnt about Fair Trade and the benefits it has not only for producers in developing coutnries but also for their communities. In order to understand better what FAIR means, we’ve played a Little game: “the carrying water game”.
The game was: one team got a cup with a hole in it, and the other team an intact cup. The teams have to carry as much water across the room from one bucket to another within an allotted time span. Halfway through I introduced the rule that the team with the leaking cup must carry it balanced on the palm of their hand. The idea was to make them aware of the difference in resources and rules for poor and rich countries when it came to trading.
I send some pictures of the game in 1 ESO. Enjoy!!
