What is Leadership?

We just started the unit on the Executive Branch in US Government, and we did one of my favorite activities.  The class was divided into groups of 4 and they had to make a body that represented the president on a big piece of butcher paper.  They did not add detail because in the body they wrote in qualities and characteristics we look for in a president.  I thought it was great that two groups drew women.  That will be a good day when this country elects a woman to the highest office in the land.

Here are some of the characteristics and qualities the students said:
  • Experienced
  • Honest
  • Religious
  • Heart
  • Respectful
  • Patriotic
  • Consistent
  • Trustworthy
  • Loyal
  • Brave
  • Intelligent
  • Relatable
  • In Control
  • Loving
  • SWAG
  • Optimistic
  • Hardworking
  • Compassionate
  • Generous
  • Strong Minded
  • Resourceful
  • Charismatic
  • Focused
  • Open Minded
  • Dedicated
  • Decisive
  • Thinks Outside The Box
  • Tactical
  • Good Speaker
  • Not Biased
  • Happy
  • Truthful

 
All the Presidents that were made
 
Everyone loved "SWAGG" in the middle!
 
The woman president one group made.  Love it!!!
