It suits the curriculum for Geography, Biology and Environmental Studies. This resource explains the story of how a Brazil nut is gathered in the Amazon rain forest and sold in the UK. It follows the gatherers as they encounter many scary/ cute animals. Brazil nuts depend on certain animals for their pollination and seed dispersal, and how this means they cannot be farmed. It then explains how these animals interact others in the forest. The presentation ends with information about life in the Amazon as a Fairtrade farmer, and the benefits Fairtrade has brought local children. It also situates this trade within the context of agribusiness and deforestation. Activities: It is suggested in the presentation that a 16.5m length of string be used to demonstrate the width of a Brazil nut tree. I have also used Fairtrade nut packaging to create rainforest animal hats.

I created this workshop about politics for adult learners studying entry level adult literacy. They each had learning difficulties and differences/ LDD/ SEN. However, I have also used it with primary school children. Once, I accompanied the lesson with resources about democracy from Twinkl. I used it to cover the British Values requirement to cover Democracy. The presentation explains what elections are, and accompanies the worksheets ‘election literature’ and ‘words and definitions’. In the election literature worksheet learners are asked to identify the type and purpose of pieces of literature which came through my door at election time. They then match the political words to the definitions (cut these our first). In the final worksheet ‘health policies’, learners consult the ‘comparison table’ and ‘short manifesto’ to answer questions about the policies of each party.
