This is a slideshow that you can use when presenting the unit to your class. It is meant to be used as a grade level activity. Each class will develop a list of characteristics of a good citizen. Then they will pick a character from a book that they think is a good citizen. The students will work in cooperative groups to prove that the character displays the characteristics of a good citizen. Then the students will develop campaign posters and commercials supporting their character in a mock election. The unit will conclude with an actual election between the characters from each of the classes.
