This week we are learning about ... chocolate!

Fairtrade Fortnight begins today - the annual celebration of all things Fairtrade!

We've refreshed our Pa Pa Paa teaching resources. 'Pa Pa Paa' means 'best of the best' in the Twi language of Ghana, and it's the motto of Kuapa Kokoo, the Fairtrade co-operative whose story we tell on the Pa Pa Paa website.

Here are our top picks from the refreshed teaching resources:

Unwrapping chocolate

This lesson plan explores two different chocolate companies, and their different approaches to doing business, through a choice of activities. Suitable for KS2 and KS3, the activities will help students to develop their critical thinking skills by exploring what it takes to be a successful - and ethical - chocolate company.

Make the case

This lesson plan for KS3 or KS4 uses case studies of four Fairtrade social enterprises and challenges students to develop and present pitches order to persuade a supermarket to stock the products of these companies.

Bean to bar presentation

We have refreshed many of our existing resources, including our most popular resource, the 'bean to bar' presentation. We have two versions of the bean to bar presentation, one shorter, one longer, which are perfect for an assembly on Fairtrade and cocoa.
