Product Description
This project is based on having mock elections when there is not an election that year. (or you just don't want to do specific candidates on an actual election year)

*For the daily plan and what the teacher would prep, you can purchase the Civics Election Unit Plan. I recommend following Days 1-5 in the plan to make sure students have basic knowledge of political parties, election procedure, propaganda, and interest groups.

You will have students in groups of 3 or 4 and give them (or let them choose) a political party to represent. The groups will choose one member to be the Candidate, one to be the Public Relations/Social Media Manager, and one (or two) to be the Campaign Manager that will create an ad on animoto (free education accounts available for teachers!)

What is inside this document:
> Project Schedule and Directions
> Basic Info Sheet for the students to fill out including their political candidate role as a Senator, their political party, propaganda, and interest groups.
> Specific role sheets for Candidate, Public Relations, and Campaign Manager.
> Campaign Button Template page
> Rubric

*There is an option for students to create their OWN political party. I use this option with my advanced class. If you'd like to opt out of that, just delete the sentences in RED on the directions.

For more authenticity, I recommend creating or purchasing in this store:
> Ballots
> Voter ID Cards

To go along with the project.
