Poetry against prejudice

Write a short anti-prejudice poem. You could write in the style of a Haiku, a form of traditional Japanese poetry. It is a 17-syllable verse form consisting of just three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables (or beats). Haiku doesn't rhyme.

Examples:

Prejudice is when
people speak without thinking
and fail to listen.

I think words can hurt
More than hitting or kicking -
Cutting me inside

When you have written a poem you can share it with other young people through this website.

Colour portraits

Aim: To recognise that we all have different coloured skin, and this is one thing that makes us special.
You will need: Paper, paints, paint pots and paintbrushes.
Duration: 45 minutes

Paint a self-portrait. Mix the correct paint colours to match your skin tone and hair colour as closely as you can. Everyone will mix their own special colour because we all have slightly different coloured skin and hair.
