Choosing Our Mascot
SIMULATION – STEP-BY-STEP
Allow the group a few minutes to celebrate and to wind down. Use this time to obtain their spontaneous reactions and to help them understand that even though only one candidate was elected, all five candidates are happy because they participated.
It may be a good idea to serve refreshments and have balloons or anything that makes this period feel like a celebration. The objective is to make children understand that voting is secret, simple, easy and important, and that winning is not all that matters. Exercising our democratic right to vote is what is most important.
