Run for office! Discuss the characteristics that are important for leaders to have. Design a poster showcasing the qualities you have that would win you votes in the next election!
Elections are important events in society. They give people the opportunity to voice their opinions and have a say in decisions being made. Elections also give leaders a chance to shine. During elections, candidates can campaign to win the hearts and votes of the people. What qualities do you think leaders should posses? Does the leader of your student council need to have the same skills and characteristics as the leader of a country?
Make a list of elections familiar to your class. What school clubs hold annual elections? What elections are there in your town? Discuss the qualities that you think are important for the candidates to portray in each of these elections. Look at examples of campaign posters with your class. What do the candidates focus on in these posters?
What elected position do you think is a good fit for you? Would you like to be Treasurer of your school’s Honor’s Society? Perhaps you dream of one day running for President of the United States!
Design a campaign poster of your own! Highlight the qualities you possess that would make you the best candidate for the job. On a piece of poster board or oak tag, use Crayola® Metallic Colored Pencils to illustrate words and symbols that represent you in the campaign. Be sure to include your name so voters will know who to choose. For extra eye-catching sparkle, use Crayola Metallic FX Crayons and Crayola Glitter Crayons to add color and a decorative border to the poster.
Display your poster for the entire class to enjoy!
