Product Description
| Election 2016 | President | Presidential Election | Hillary Clinton | Donald Trump | Special Education | Life Skills |

With Election Day fast approaching, students will be surrounded by Presidential election coverage everywhere they go.

Every 4 years, this continues to be one of the most powerful lessons I teach. Although this purchase was created specifically with special education students in mind, it is a great starting point for an introduction to elections for ANY classroom!

This unit includes a really fun game that is formatted to help your students understand the electoral college in an engaging and academic way! My classes have LOVED playing it and I am sure yours will too! In essence, the class is divided into 2 groups and each group is given a "budget" of $100 to campaign across the United States. Whichever team spends more in a state wins the points for that state. Whoever has the most points at the end - WINS!

This unit is a great way to challenge kids to start thinking about the candidates in a more engaging manner and use their skills to take meaningful information during this election year!

Please note: This unit has been used in special education classrooms with much success. If you feel like you need a more detailed lesson plan for your students, this may not be the best fit. This lesson was intended to introduce students with limited reading and writing skills to the basic concepts of elections
