SEN Geography/PSHCE/Fair Trade

SEN Geography/PSHCE/Fair Trade

This fun game is very energetic and the students will love playing it. It is designed for secondary SEN students but could be adapted easily to suit Key Stage 2. The aim of the game is to show some of the issues which farmers in poor countries face to make money from their produce and the difficulties that they face on a day to day basis. This game is frenetic and the kids ask to play the game over and over again.
