I was wondering if you have a chance to email me about the voting packet. I read the descriptions and purchased the product. After downloading it, it was not what I anticipated. Can you email me when I get a chance? firstname.lastname@example.org

I was wondering if the voting packet includes informational comprehension pages about elections and presidents. Something I can use to introduce the unit. Example president must be (age, citizen, etc). I have the same question for the kings vs presidents venn.
I purchased the packet. I have some questions I wanted to discuss via email. Is that possible? email@example.com
Hi, Anne! Your products look great! They make me wish that I still taught science. :) I am departmentalized now, so I can only hope to intertwine social studies and language arts with science every now and then. I am glad that you like my election unit! Best wishes on TpT! :) Welcome to the club!
