You still have time to teach students about the election process and why it is important. This is an easy-to-follow guide teaching the basics of the process. The vocabulary words learned in this unit include: government, Constitution, election, citizens, and vote. Students complete a picture dictionary while learning these words to help them retain the information. At the end, students get to use their creative abilities by designing a poster explaining why citizens should vote. This could be a pre-cursor to a class election by helping students understand why voting is important and unique in our country.
