Global Exchange's National Valentine’s Day of Action: 3,500 for Fair Trade!

Global Exchange invites K-6 teachers to teach their Fair Trade cocoa curriculum during the National Valentine's Day of Action. Their goal is to educate at least 3,500 children about Fair Trade, and help thousands of kids in cocoa farming communities.

Global Exchange's Fair Trade curriculum features ready-to-use lesson plans based on inquiry- and experiential-based learning. It satisfies state teaching standards in every discipline. Kids learn they have the power to make a global impact AND it's fun!

Best of all, it is the culmination of a service-learning project where students from Evergreen State College's Master in Teaching program authored the lesson plans.
