Election Ads

Election time fun is here!
 My students created TV ads for a candidate of their choice and then wrote a persuasive speech to go with it. We talked about catchy slogan writing and selling your candidate. This was one project every student wanted to get right to work on. Some picked to write about an animal or cartoon character and others chose to write about themselves or a classmate as a candidate. So fun!

The lead in to this lesson was the wonderful book Vote by Eileen Christelow.
Her website has lots of election links too!

I've linked this up with Erin's Linky party
