The abridged version of Julos Beaucarne's poem below would appeal to KS3 students learning countries and nationalities, adjective agreement or possessive adjectives. A powerful and accessible way to celebrate our multicultural society!
Copy the poem below, cutting the nationality words and putting them in a box at the bottom of the page to create a gap-fill activity. Encourage students to think in terms of their grammatical knowledge as well as their cultural awareness when choosing the correct words to fill the gaps.
Students could then use this as a springboard for creating their own poems with a similar pattern, perhaps finding out where their own possessions or favourite dishes originated and doing a 'mon/ma/mes' version.
