Don’t Forget to Vote
by Simon Cooke, illustrations by Beck Wheeler
This is a humorous play featuring the characters from “Let’s Vote on It” (SJ L2 May 2020). It’s based around the importance of voting so that you can have your say. The citizens want to replace the king – a vote is held, but the king forgets to vote and loses the election as a result. Plays provide opportunities for students to develop their oral language and performance skills. They will also be able to use the characters’ actions and dialogue to make inferences and interpret the play’s main message.
