This packet was designed to use the book, Duck for President for a week long celebration of election or during President's Day!
There are 5 comprehension/response activities, including character traits, cause and effect, story map, favorite part of the story response and a retelling.
There are various writing activities to complete as well---such as can, has, is maps for Farmer Brown and Duck; Webbing, writing and drawing a campaign poster for either/or Duck or Farmer Brown for president; Venn diagram to compare the 2; webbing, writing and drawing a campaign poster for why each student should be president.
There are also 3 activities to review/teach proper nouns, and also vocabulary cards for important presidential election words.
I have included a ballot to vote for Duck or Farmer Brown for president and a recording sheet to tally, graph and analyze the results.
Everything is aligned to the Common Core Standards for first grade.
