Community Leaders??

I need help with some ideas on a lesson for community leaders. The students will be learning very soon about the election and will have a mock election in class and will have fake voter registration cards, etc. They will also be learning about rules and being a good citizen. They have learned about presidents and their role. Now, I need to do a lesson on community leaders (like mayor, governor, etc.). I was going to begin by activating their prior knowledge on the president and citizenship and rules, and then explain to them what a community is and how we all work together. I just don't know what I'm going to do for learning about leaders without getting too in depth, as they are just first graders. My class is pretty high-leveled, and I don't need to do much differentiation, but I'm just having trouble with this lesson. Also, I am a student teacher and this is the first social studies lesson I will have taught!
If anyone has any lessons or activities, can you please help me out! Thank you!

We just finished our unit on community. We started by talking about what a leader is, then leaders at home, leaders at school, finally community leaders.

You could compare and contrast community leaders vs. ? leaders.
-Get 2 hula hoops, to make a big venn diagram on the floor.
-Have phrases or sentences already made up on card stock that you want the kids to sort.
-Read the card and have the kids sort them in the 3 groups.

This is easy and gets the kids up. My kids can do this activity and feel successful (they are pretty low).

I was going to have them compare and contrast leaders in the community vs. leaders in the school possibly. My instructor has asked me to use realia (real life examples. ex: map, photos, etc.) and that is something that has been extra challenging for me.
The hula hoop idea is wonderful!
