In this lesson, students explore the elements that must be present in a country in order for democracy to thrive. Students will:

  • Define and describe through visual art at least one principle of democracy;
  • Rate their country on specific principles;
  • Explain the role of a citizen in supporting the health of a democracy; and 
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the principles of democracy and why they are important.
