Product Description
This book is designed to teach students about the election process in the United States. The first several pages present information about the purpose of voting and explain important developments in the history of voting. The middle pages teach students about the Electoral College and the election of a U.S. President, senators, representatives, judges, and local officials. The remaining pages deal with campaigns and require students to create campaign materials and compose a speech in support of a candidate. Page 28 presents a crossword puzzle which provides a comprehensive review of election terms. The teacher's guide contains activity sheet answers as well as a variety of creative challenge activities that extend students' learning.After students complete the activities in this book, you may wish to invite community leaders, such as judges, city council members, or election officials to speak to your class. Students can then use the information they have learned about elections to compose questions for the speakers and engage them in discussion.
