In their Patrols the scouts will have to make up an argument for why their patrols should have a box of chocolates.
box of chocolates
Introduce what MP's do for the country. Then say that we are going to have a mock election. This is a private vote and they are not allowed to vote for their own patrol. they will have 20 minutes to come up with a 2 minute speech in why their patrol should have the chocolates. They can make promises like ( we will share them with you if you vote for us/ if you patrol votes for us we will give you one each.) after all patrols will have made their speech they will then have a ballot paper to vote which patrol they think should have the chocolates.
lets see if they keep to their promises.
