Each group or pair gets a copy of the worksheet with the poem. They use dictionaries  (online or traditional) and their knowledge about the world to find out what the bold parts of the text mean or talk about how they understand them.


Play the song and discuss the differences between the poem and the song.


Show them the infogaphic and ask them the obvious question: Where is the love? In groups, they should come up with some examples of where they see love in their lives.
