PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It's Election Year!

Teach your students about the election in a fun, easy to understand, engaging way...with candy bars!!!!

This unit was truly designed for grades K-6. With all of the activities included, there are so many different ways to present it to your class. Older grades can hold primaries, and have a press group to ask candidates the tough questions.

Younger grades can hold a general election, and place their ballots in the ballot box.

All grades can hold a post-election celebration!!!

This really is a GREAT, FUN, and EDUCATIONAL way to involve your students in the Election Process.

Included, for you to pick and choose from:

Before, During, and After Election Activities, including:

*A list of suggested candy bars
*A letter to parents for supplies
*A suggested election timeline
*Campaign Volunteer Buttons
*Campaign Poster Planner
*Speech Planner
*"Official" Speech Paper
*Press ID Badges
*Press question planning sheet
*Voting Signs
*Ballot Box Signs
*Ballots
*"I Voted" stickers
*Tally Charts {to laminate}
*Graphs
*Graph Response Sheets
*Post-Election Celebration Ideas
*Celebration Invitations
*Newspaper Front Page template to announce the big news!

Many of the activities are in 2 fonts, one geared towards lower elementary students, and one geared toward upper elementary/middle school students

Many of the resources are also offered in Black and White/Grayscale to save on your colored ink!

Everything you need to hold a mock election in your room is included, with a candy bar theme.

Please email me with any questions or suggestions!

Happy Electing-
Halle

Good unit, over designed and a bit chaotic. I prefer a simpler design, less clip art and basic font.
