Rap battles between characters in well known stories can be fun. Here is one between the Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs. The audience decides the winner by shouting “Yo yo yo!” or “No no no!” when prompted by the rappers. The rapper who gets the loudest response wins.
The Big Bad Wolf
The Three Little Pigs
Have a go in pairs at writing and performing a battle rap to the rest of the class. Characters from traditional stories and legends are great for rap battles and they don’t even have to come from the same story. How about a rap battle between Maui and Cinderella?
Once two boys asked if they could have a battle rap between Lionel Messi, the famous soccer player, and a pencil sharpener. That sounded too silly, even for me, but I let them do it and the rap battle was fantastic. (the pencil sharpener won.)
