Ask the students to run their own election campaign. They can work individually or in groups and make things like flyers and election posters. This project can include writing, drawing and painting, speeches, discussions and reflecting on important issues.

Begin the activities by explaining that the outcome of political elections in a country is sometimes influenced by corruption and abuse of power. Some candidates, who have money and power, can buy more media exposure or force electoral workers to cheat.

Let your students study good and bad examples of elections from the adult world. Discuss how they could run a fair election campaign, where all candidates have the same amount of exposure and where everyone knows enough about the candidates to be able to make an informed choice.

The results can be shared in, for example, an exhibition, a school magazine or on social media.
