Easter eggs and Economics

An article that I read yesterday, is a great example of leveraging off things that are current in ‘teenager space’ to teach Economics ideas. It deals with work practices in the cocoa trade by starting with chocolate Easter eggs - something most kids are interested in at this time of the year.

You can use article, ‘Turning to Easter eggs to get through these dark times? Here's the bitter truth about chocolate’, from The Conversation in:

  • Year 9 (trade with other countries – ethical trade is a ‘moral’ consideration to include).
