PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here's a quick, easy & fun little something to help your students become familiar with the 2016 Presidential candidates.

There are many options for putting this "Democracy Dangler" craft together.

Children can simply choose the candidate that they are going to vote for in your school’s mock election, or the candidate that they would vote for if they were 18.

They can pick the full-page large oval or the smaller, 2-on-a-page version.

Writing Prompt Options: On the back older students write the reasons why they support that candidate, reasons why they are going to vote for that nominee or the things that they like about that person.

Students could also pick 2 candidates, glue these ovals back-to-back then complete a comparison-contrast writing prompt which they’d write on the back of the “Election 2016” square. OR …

Children feature all 4 candidates in the order that they like them, the top one being the one that they will be voting for, then write factual information on the back of each oval, or things they like and dislike about each candidate.

Younger kiddos can simply make a dangler.

Ovals can be glued on a length of yarn or patriotic ribbon, with a loop at the top for hanging,

I’ve also included real photograph-ovals of each candidate which you can use:
* to introduce your lesson,
* help explain things,
* test for comprehension of who that nominee is, and/or
* use for a display.

Completed projects look awesome dangling from the ceiling, as a border along a hallway wall.

I’ve included a “Hanging Out With The Candidates” poster you can use for your display as well.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy making a “Democracy Dangler” as they learn about the 2016 Presidential candidates.
