Key Stage 2 Ethical Trading ESR Year 5 Year 6

This three-lesson ESR scheme of work continues children’s learning about ethical trade by considering the human and environmental impacts of the fast fashion industry.

 
#TheCompleteSeries3lessons

The children begin by exploring where their clothing is made and who is involved in the process. They then begin to unpick the impacts that the industry is having on worker rights and how consumers’ treatment of clothing is damaging the environment. Using this information the children can then reflect on their own clothing habits and discuss ways to combat the negative impacts this industry is having on a personal, local and global scale.

With lesson plans, slides for the teaching input, differentiated activities and a range of printable resources, this ‘Fast Fashion’ scheme will encourage discussion within your class and encourage the children to become more aware of the impacts their choices as a consumer can have.

#Lesson1WhatisFastFashion

Where do your clothes come from? Start this scheme of work by asking your class to reflect on who makes their clothes and what happens to clothing before and after it is bought by consumers. Ask the children to think about the difference between want and need when buying new clothing and compare this attitude to 100 years in the past and how our attitudes to buying clothes have changed. This lesson encourages the children to build their own opinions on the fast fashion industry and begin investigating the reasons behind it.

This downloadable lesson comes with a lesson plan, a slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.
