Decorate your Fairtrade cotton bunting with adinkra symbols

We've created a special resource for teachers joining in with Fairtrade Fortnight's cotton bunting decorating activity. This new resource focuses on adinkra symbols, the unusual patterns that feature on the wrappers of Divine Chocolate bars.

Alongside this, we've got a rather fantastic webcast from Kuapa Kokoo farmers' children in Ghana, where they decorate a pack of the Fairtrade cotton bunting with adinkra symbols and explain the significance of each symbol.

This is available to watch for free, along with the lesson plan, on the Pa Pa Paa LIVE website.

This Fairtrade Fortnight, why not choose the adinkra symbol that you think is most like you, and decorate your Fairtrade cotton bunting with it?
