The London 2012 Olympics provides a fantastic opportunity for pupils in the 9-14 age group to learn more about who makes the sportswear and sporting merchandise they buy.  Fair’s Fair brings alive the concepts of human rights, equality and fairness by telling stories of people who make these goods in poorer countries, often working with few rights, and for poverty wages.
The pack was developed through involvement with teacher members from Anti-Slavery International, ATL, NASUWT and NUT working in collaboration with the TUC.  Lesson ideas and activities make links between different subjects including art and design, citizenship, English, geography and maths.

 

The pack includes:
10 lesson plans
14 activity sheets
4 photo cards
A DVD made with pupils from the Cherwell School and Oaks Park High School

By using this pack, pupils can develop their understanding of why decent working conditions are part of the United Nations Millenium Development Goals to end poverty, and take practical actions to help make the world a fairer place.
