A recycling and the Beatboxing project took place in Theodor Kramer Straße school on the 31st of January 2018. In 2B, that was the talk of the day.
In groups of two and three students wrote texts based on the topic recycling and rehearsed them in rap music form, in preparation for the forthcoming Beatboxer visit. Moreover, the class had been learning about recycling for the two days beforehand.
Beatboxer Fii, who is famous from Austrian casting shows, took 2B down to the gym to start the beatboxing training. Quoting the children,“ He made us do funny sounds with our mouths; some of us even had throat ache and were coughing for some time after.“
Close to the end of the project Beatboxer Fii created beats for the students who could use their own text and sing along, thereby creating their own rap music,
A whole new song was created about recycling, basketball, rugby and chicken. Before he left, he also handed out autographs. He later on said that, If we wanted to stalk him we should follow him on all his social media platforms.“
