As part of Fairtrade Fortnight 5G took part in a variety of P4C activities to develop our critical thinking…..
We prioritised cards about sustainability and social justice and answered the question: What’s the most important thing I can do to make the world a better place?
We looked at photos of people of different ethnicities and answered: What are they like? We tried to label them with words such as rich, poor, lazy, happy, clever, strange, naughty, funny, lucky, and unhappy.
We used a blank map of Africa to record our responses to the question: What would you expect to find if you visited Africa?
We used a picture stimulus of Jean-Baptiste, a 9 year-old worker on a cocoa plantation, alongside a brief description of his life and work. We created a response grid for Jean-Baptiste, his mother, a child buying chocolate and a shopkeeper selling chocolate to answer the question: How do they feel?
