Here’s a few of the 5th grade social studies students at Homer Intermediate School who participated in a campaign to raise awareness about Fair Trade Chocolate, this Halloween.
They read about the subject, watched a movie called The Dark Side of Chocolate, and participated in a letter writing campaign to persuade major chocolate companies to join the Fair Trade Certification System.
The students at Homer also participated in Reverse Trick-or-Treatingto try to make a difference in how other children around the world are being treated.
