Night Zoo Mayoral Elections

Create the next Mayor of the Night Zoo

Over the next two weeks, we are challenging your students to invent a magical animal that could become the next mayor of the Night Zoo! All they have to do is write an article of over 100 words explaining why their creation would make an excellent mayor.

Your students should try to make their article as persuasive as possible, as there will be a voting process live on the Night Times. Children from around the world will be reading their articles and deciding upon which candidate they feel is most suited to the job! Students MUST also draw an illustration of their candidate, so that creation can be entered into the competition.
