After reading the three poems, select your favourite one.

Write down which is your favourite giving reasons for your choice.

Now watch the rap Refuse, Reuse, Recycle on Earth’s Ekko: Together We Can Make A World of Difference (from 11:00 – 12:22 mins) here:

Earth's Ekko - Together We Can Make A World of Difference - YouTube


After watching the rap, create your own based on climate change.

This may be completely written by yourself or you may choose to edit one of the poems you read earlier.

If you do choose to edit one of the poems, you could edit it in these suggested ways:

- adding an extra verse you have written and/or a chorus which could go between each stanza

- redrafting some of the lines using Thesaurus and Word Tools | WordHippo to help with improving the vocabulary

- removing some of the original lines / changing the order.

Once you have written your rap, have a go at performing it to someone in your house.

If possible, you could also record it to send to Mr Howarth!
