Use football to examine inequality between and within countries, explore footballers and other people who have taken action to make the world fairer, examine news around the World Cup, consider how making new rules in football could make the game fairer, and understand the causes, effects and solutions to inequality in Brazil.

There are independent activities linked to a variety of curriculum areas and support for pupils to make a 'World Cup Fairness Display' to show their learning to the rest of the school.
