I am a big fan of coffee. The product also provides many ways in which to explore geographical concepts and links such as interdependence, trade and climate. Alan Parkinson has produced some resources for Costa that are free and include a rather useful interactive map that could be used to support some independent enquiry. The resource is mapped to and links well with the current National Curriculum, but can easily be adapted and linked to the new curriculum in 2015.
The site has a wealth of information and case-study material and is well worth a look. I particularly like the title of lesson three: ‘Can coffee make the world a better place?’ which is a challenging enquiry question to consider in detail.
Well worth checking out, especially as it’s free.
