We have elections every single year in the country and we need to do a better job about teaching elections. This resource will really work well in presidential elections because we all follow it but there is absolutely no reason you couldn't use this during mid-terms or governor's races or Congressional races.

Hold a classroom election or have a school-wide election (I did when I was in third grade. I always remembered it and created this resource in honor of it).

Print the elephant and donkey to represent the Republican and Democratic parties. I included an eagle for those rare times you have a legitimate third-party candidate. Students pick the symbol that represents the party of their chosen candidate, color it, and then you put it on a display board to show the winner - at least in your classroom/school.


Please note:

You may want a school-wide election but you need to purchase multiple licenses for every single teacher using it. Multiple licenses are discounted and you do have the option to have your school purchasing office make the purchase en masse for you.


What's Included:

  • Donkey page
  • Elephant page
  • Eagle page
  • Editable or printable candidate name cards (editable PPT page if you choose - just print and then write the names if you choose)


I have other election resources you should consider especially if you are hoping to have schoolwide interest in each election cycle.

Apples and Oranges: Primary and Election bundle is a great way to keep politics out of the classroom of our littlest learners but still introduce them to the concept of voting.

Voter information posters help you organize important election information for your students. Include the date of the next primary or election, check off if your state has ID laws, absentee voting, etc. The more information we share the better the voter turnout.

I Voted Stickersvotes are fun. They just are. Everyone wants them when they vote. Print these on sticky labels and hand them out after students cast their votes in your classroom/schoolwide election.
