The World Cup: A Fair Game?

KS2: ages 7-11KS3: ages 11-14Website

This cross-curricular resource for 9-14 year olds uses the World Cup to develop critical thinking around issues of fairness and equality.

Investigate geographical similarities and differences, play World Cup Trumps and compare a range of statistics, explore gender inequality through the lens of football, and consider how fairness relates to rules in general.

Use real-life statistics and the World Cup to engage learners and enable them to see the practical relevance of maths, English, geography, and PE in the world around them.
