In this Electoral College project, students select a past Presidential election and conduct research about it, compiling data, graphs, pictures, and maps, to complete a poster that perfectly integrates Math and Social Studies. This project integrates math into social studies by having students calculate percentages, create bar graphs, and create pie graphs. One could even go further in having students create pie graphs with the precise allocation to show the proper percentage.
Included are cover page, project guidelines, modified project guidelines for lower level students, student signup sheet, project example, student paper for calculating percentages, and blank maps that should be used on the final poster.
This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom. Just follow the included instructions for how to access the Google version, then share the resource through Google or assign via Google Classroom. This will allow students to type directly into document!
