Description

Investigate how many companies now produce fair Trade chocolate products. Compare a Fair Trade bar with an ordinary bar (Visual Fair Trade Game)

Resources

 Ball of string
 A cut out of the roles on the next page (or you can make up your own about any product)

Instructions

Introduction
A visual game to give the Guides a better understanding of Fair Trade

Instructions

A group of 10 stand in a circle and give each Guide one role which they read out to the rest of the group. One Guide holds the end of the string and passes the ball to someone they ‘link’ with (for example the factory owner might be linked to the supermarket or the businessman). They explain why they feel related to the other person.
This person then chooses another that they’re linked to and passes the string on, keeping hold of the string themselves. After sometime there will be a web of string across the circle.
Then tell the group there has been a drought or a disease affecting cocoa farmers and get the farmers to wiggle the string. The whole web should move, showing that everyone is affected.


Debrief/Discussion

Ask the Guides what do they think the web shows them and how do they think everyone is affected by the drought/disease?
