Hidalgo 5th Graders:)

By in , ,

Currently in Mrs. Hidalgo’s Class….

We are hard at work on our persuasive papers. The following info describes the project!

-WHAT IS FAIR TRADE?

-WHAT MAKES YOUR PRODUCT UNIQUE AND SPECIAL?

-HOW WILL ______BENEFIT FROM BUYING YOUR PRODUCT?

-WHAT ORGANIZATIONS/PEOPLE BENEFIT FROM THIS FAIR TRADE SYSTEM? GIVE LOTS OF REAL LIFE EXAMPLES!! THIS WILL PERSUADE THEM TO INVEST IN YOUR IDEAS AND YOUR COMPANY!!!

Mrs. Hidalgo’s class dove into this research by analyzing 5 FAIR TRADE chocolate companies. We ate our way into an understanding of what makes FAIR TRADE products such an incredible pursuit. Students learned where these products were made, from which materials, by whom, and more importantly, how the farmers and the farmers’ families benefit from this system within their families and communities. The students then researched the multitude of fair trade companies to choose which they were going to learn about and promote within a local Austin business. Through their persuasive efforts, they are hoping to have these businesses not only learn about these companies, but invest and carry these fair trade products. Students chose to advocate for fair trade sugar, beauty products, ice-cream and energy drinks. Wish them luck in these humanitarian pursuits!
