PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This file is a 2-page pdf that you would hand out to students to guide them in creating their own political party. They must come up with a name for their party, identify the top 5 issues that are important to their party and explain their party's stand on these issues, choose a party slogan, and explain why they have chosen the animal they did to represent their party.

I have used this in several ways with my students. It makes an interesting class activity for election years especially, but I have also used it when doing "class elections"... For example, several years ago, my 4th grade students held an "election" for class government positions, and we used this activity to identify and discuss "classroom issues" that were important for students to address in their campaigns. We also chose a few of the parties that students created for students to "join" and support their candidate for office. It made for a really neat experience!

This pdf contains the 2-page student handout that guides them through the process of creating a political party.
