  • Schools competition graphicChoose a Fairtrade product to research
  • Find out about the people who grow/make it. What work do they do? How does selling Fairtrade goods benefit them and their communities? How do their lives differ from people who make goods not sold on fair trade terms?
  • Find out about who else is involved in bringing us the product
  • Decide how you are going to tell the story of the product: puppets telling the story? A story book read out by the product? An animation?
  • Do your preparation (make props, draw your pictures etc) and practice (or not in the case of the Fairtrade Yorkshire rose example!)

Record your story and upload it to Youtube (no longer than 2 minutes please!)
