This is a set of different resources to teach the general election process in your classroom. You can use the resources on your own or use them to supplement other things you may already have. I included a book list to help find more resources for your students.
I included various writing prompts (narrative and opinion) and some graphic organizers to supplement the election knowledge gained.
Use the following activities as you see fit and time permits in your classroom to have your students learn the election process.
P. 4-16 Election vocabulary Words on posters that can be printed or projected and a chart for students to \write definitions
p. 17-22 Question Posters - these posters feature big idea
