Be a Leader!
Gather a small group of friends for this activity! In your group stand on a small mat or blanket, something that you can all just fit onto. Now work together to turn the mat over, without anyone stepping off it. When you have completed the task, think about the following; who demonstrated strong leadership skills? What did they do or not do? How did they support other group members? Was it important to have a leader for this activity?
In pairs, write and record an episode of the new podcast ‘Take the Lead’ where you talk about what makes a good leader and interview ‘leaders’ in your local community to find out more about their skills. Publish your podcast episodes on your school website!
From each leader that you interview, ask them for a piece of advice for how to be a great leader. Collect all the advice to create a memorable resource for each person in your class when they leave.
