CREATE A COMIC STRIP: SHOULD WE LOWER THE VOTING AGE TO 16?
In light of the terrible mass gun shootings at a Florida school, some believe that the nation should lower the voting age to 16, from the current age of 18. They say that because young people have been affected the school violence, they should be able to have a say in electing legislators whose decisions about gun control and other issues affect their young lives. Others question whether 16 year-olds can make informed choices in the voting booth. Time now for you to create a comic strip at MakeBeliefsComix.com in which your characters express your views on this issue. Where do you stand: lower the voting age or leave it as is, and why?
