Political Candidate Improv Games


For ages 12 and up! Four detailed improv games designed to deepen students’ understanding of elections and systems of government.


For ages 12 and up. Here’s an innovative set of drama activities that integrates drama and government studies. The games allow students to sharpen their improvisational skills while acting out scenarios related to politics, elections, and systems of government.


You’ve Got Issues
Explain to students that while running for election, candidates for political office will give their views on issues that affect the citizens of their nation, state, or city. Next, ask each student who their favorite hero/heroine is in real life and why they choose that person. After everyone has made a choice, tell them that they will now portray that person as if they were running for office. Each student will step forward and (in character) give their opinions on the following topics:

Climate Change

  • Discrimination/Equality in the Workplace
  • Alternative Energy (Wind, solar, etc.)
  • Plus 25 more topics!
