Choosing Our Mascot

CAMPAIGNING

Max's speech

Good day, boys and girls. My name is Max the Walrus, and I'm running to become your group's mascot.

I work hard, and I'm honest and gentle. I'm very sociable and I like to bask in the sun with all my friends among the ice floes. I believe we could be good friends too.

At first sight, I may look clumsy, but you would be proud of me if you saw me moving smoothly and quickly in the water. I'm a pretty strong swimmer! I glide under the water holding my breath, just like you. Every once in a while, I have to come up for air.

After a long, busy morning raking the ocean floor looking for shellfish to eat, I come to the surface to rest. In the summer, I like to rest on the rocks. In the spring, I use my long ivory tusks to pull myself up onto the ice and drift happily and take a nap.

If you would like a sociable and hard-working class, please think about choosing me as your mascot.

 

Max's campaign song

Max the Walrus, Max the Walrus,
We think you're a winner,
Looking on the ocean floor
For something for your dinner.
Float on the water, lie on a rock, (bobbing motion)
Walk your rolling walrus walk. (walk like a walrus)
Your flippers make a flap, flap, flap; (hands out, then clap)
After you work you nap. (tilted head rests on hands)

Max the Walrus, Max the Walrus,
When your work is done,
Lie upon a floe of ice
Basking in the sun.
Float on the water, lie on rock, (bobbing motion)
Walk your rolling walrus walk. (walk like a walrus)
Your flippers make a flap, flap, flap; (hands out, then clap)
After you work you nap. (tilted head rests on hands)
