In this lesson you will teach students how the Electoral College works. Students will be hooked when they see results of the 2000 election and realize the person with the most popular votes does not always win elections in the US. Students will become familiar with the process and will understand the terms "Popular Vote" and "Electoral Vote". They will end the lesson by completing an activity using data from the 2012 election in which they are given results from 8 states. They will figure out the electoral score of those states to show their understanding of the process of how a President is elected.
