Product Description
An engaging classroom civics activity with step by step instructions demonstrating the value of voting and making our voices be heard! Students mirror America's election process by discussing and debating provided community issues, followed by a unique voting exercise.

Three unique community issues are detailed, along with three candidates for mayor who offer different, specific solutions. Students are divided among candidates to argue on their behalf. After the debates, a vote is taken to determine the best solution, and the ballots are randomly reduced by 60% (reflecting the actual percentage of eligible US citizens who vote) and the remaining 40% are tallied.

Post-election questions keep the discussion going.

"Mini-Lessons" and Queries to encourage dialogue are scattered throughout exercise, along with a Voting Fact Sheet, to increase students' depth of knowledge about elections and the voting process.

Includes ballots, tally sheets, "Vote" sign and "Support Your Argument Worksheets."
