Fair Trade Rainforest Farm
This map has been designed for the topic of rainforests and is a trading style game. Aimed at Years 5 to 6 (UK)
During the game the children will all play in the same map and work as a team harvesting wheat, sugar and cocoa beans and selling cakes, cookies, cocoa and bread to the various fair traders in the game. As the children play the game there are various information blocks that I have created with Rainforest facts and links to different websites. For example just outside the game play area I have built an area that is currently being deforested and the info block tells the children about deforestation and how it’s effect the world’s Rainforests.
To make the game fun I have also hidden other things around the map for the children to find. For example there is an ancient ruined temple with a tribesman that they can talk to find more information about the Rainforest.
