No monkeying around when it comes to leadership and voting at Lay

Students are shown representing zoo animals that are taking a vote that will impact the zoo.

Catherine Davis’ 4th grades classes have been learning about the right to vote. On Tuesday,  they performed a skit on why to vote for a good leader.

“The skit taught them about listening to what candidates stand for before they choose who to vote for,” Davis explained.

In the skit, there is two candidates a lion and a monkey. The monkey promises the rest of the zoo equal use a the watering hole. The lion relies on his strength to scare the other animals. This is laying the groundwork for the students to create their own campaigns.

She plans on inviting Mike Corey to speak to her classes later and bring an official voting booth for her classes to use in their classroom elections.
