Fair Trade Lesson Plans

Fair Trade Lesson Plans

Fair Trade Campaigns has developed a series of lesson plans to help educators bring Fair Trade into their middle and high school classrooms.

Each lesson developed by Fair Trade Campaigns includes several activities, which can be completed individually or as a full, sequential lesson. There are four distinct lessons, covering four subject areas in relation to Fair Trade:

  • Changing the Rules of the Global Economy: An Introduction to Fair Trade
  • Gender Equity and Fair Trade
  • Child Labor and Fair Trade
  • Environmental Sustainability and Fair Trade

The lessons come with an accompanying Educator’s Guide which includes background information for teachers and guidance on effective instructional strategies. These are differentiated lesson plans for grades 6-12, which are aligned with common core standards in English and Language Arts and applicable for a variety of subject areas. Teachers have used the lessons in subjects including English, Social Studies, Biology, Environmental Science, and Business.
