Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To become familiar with the electoral process and the issues facing the country in the late 1800s.

TIME:
1 class period

You can begin this activity by reading with the class sections 1-3, which provide information about the candidates, campaign, and election results of the election of 1888.

Students will then do a fun Map Exercise by taking electoral results from a chart and recording them on a map showing the 38 states that belonged to the Union during the election of 1888. I provide my students with colored pencils for the mapwork as this makes it more enjoyable for them.

Following the Map Exercise, there are 25 questions on the election of 1888 that can be answered based on information learned on the preceding pages.

The lesson concludes with a Thought Question pertaining to how the presidential candidate with the most popular votes may not always win the election. This helps students develop critical thinking skills.
