Our first unit “Champions for change” was focusing on a very significant topic, democracy, and the importance of participation. In grade 4 we started with an inquiry into the different types of government around the world and then we focused on democracy. We learned about the roots of this political system and the different types of democracy that are currently in various countries, including Sweden. Taking this unit as inspiration, learners prepared for the student council representatives elections. In Art, we learned about the principles of graphic design and color theory and made our own campaign poster. In English, we looked at persuasive text and arguments and prepared a speech about why people should vote for us. Our exit point was of course the class elections!
