These I CAN posters are quick and easy to print and post in your classroom! They are aligned with the standards for teaching the fundamentals of Elections and Voting in Civics and US History. I have uploaded them as individual jpg files that high enough in resolution to be enlarged on a Poster Maker without losing clarity. I have also combined them into a PPT file for easy printing as portrait, 8.5x11.
