What you need
- A selection of ingredients from around the world, some of which are fairly traded (e.g. sugar, flour, tea, coffee, herbs, spices, nuts, seeds, chocolate, cocoa, dried fruit, honey, bananas, apples, juices etc)
- world map or globe
- small stickers or sticky notes
- a tray
- a cloth
- paper and pens.
How to play
Put all the ingredients on a tray, covered with a cloth before the game begins.
Get the group into pairs and then uncover the tray for 30 seconds.
Participants must try and remember all the objects.
After re-covering the tray give each pair some paper and pens to write down as many objects as they can remember.
Check the answers as a group.
Ingredients from around the world
Identify where the ingredients came from and talk about how they got here. Could some of the same ingredients be grown in the UK? If so, why are they being imported? Everyone should mark where each ingredient comes from on the map and see how many countries are represented. Show the Pioneers the Fair Trade logo.
Ask them what it means and what they know about fair trade. Discuss with the group which ingredients can be purchased using fair trade.
