Get Learning: Trading Game

Wednesday 18th December 2019

Christian Aid’s Trading Game is an interactive way of learning about how trade between countries works and the issues that maintain a gap between rich and poor nations.

The game involves groups creating and selling shapes made from pieces of paper, with each having different levels of natural resources (paper) and manufacturing tools available. The idea is that groups will soon work out the need to trade with each other.

As a follow up you could initiate a discussion about how the different groups felt, whether they felt it was fair and how things could be different.
