Let's Play an Election Game

'One of the Important Characteristics of a student is to question. Let the students ask question'

When I and my husband were talking about the recent by election of Tamilnadu, my curious little one started shooting me with her questions – ‘What is Election? What is voting?’

I explained her about our election system and then I thought of creating an election feel via a game – ‘An election game.’
I tried to implement the important features of an election: candidates, ballot sheets and box, standing in line, election Ink, voting, counting and announcement.
Here are our Candidates – Tom and Jerry.

Wait in the line for your turn.

‘Let me put the election ink’

A simple ballot sheet (As we don’t have a printer in our village house)

My little one asked her grandparents to cast their votes too. Her friends asked their mothers to do so.  They laughed and happily participated. At the end, They themselves separated the ballot sheets and counted.  

“Jerry Won. ooooh”
