Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To understand how the caucus, convention, and primary election have been used to choose political candidates through the years.

TIME:
1 class period

After giving each student a copy of pages 39A-39C, read with the class the brief introductory paragraph about how political candidates have been chosen throughout American history.

Students then read through a series of sentences which are arranged into the following sections:

• Caucuses
• National Conventions
• Primary Elections

As class members are reading and learning about these topics, they must also fill in missing words, names, and terms to complete the sentences. The first and last letters of each answer are given as clues.

ACTIVITY OPTIONS:
This lesson can be turned into a fun contest between individual class members, or pairs, to see who can come up with the most correct answers by the end of the period or time limit you set for them. You can also turn this into a game by dividing the class into two teams that will take turns trying to identify the correct answers as you read through the story with them.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
