The Fairtrade Chocolate Bar Game

In Primary 6, we have been learning about Fairtrade and the importance of it in our society. We played a very interesting game in which we were split into groups and given a role in the production of a chocolate bar. This went all the way from the cocoa bean farmers, producing the beans, to the journalists who write about and advertise the chocolate being sold by the large companies. We were very excited about this game and it was very interesting to see how easy it was for the bigger companies to want to pay unfair prices to the farmers. After the game, we reflected on our findings and discussed why having fair prices for the farmers was fair.
