TransFair USA's Focus on Fair Trade Curriculum offers an accessible way to introduce students of all ages to the concept of global interdependence and citizenship, through an exploration of familiar foods produced outside the USA: chocolate, bananas and coffee.

The curriculum includes engaging activities that help students to identify with the hard work of farmers around the world, and to develop interest in learning more about where their food comes from. The curriculum further fosters global citizenship as students learn to recognize and appreciate empowering consumer choices such as Fair Trade, which have a real impact on people around the world.

This curriculum focuses on cocoa and is designed for students from K to 2. To check out all the available curriculum, please click here.
