PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Electoral College
Reading, Questions and Mystery Picture

This project was created for the 2016 election but can be used for any presidential election. There are two parts. Part 1: A reading explaining the Electoral College with questions to answer. Part 2: A blank map to fill in as the election votes come in. If time permits, we’ve also included a graphing project for the students to create the map.

The graphing project can be a class project or something to be worked on independently when time allows. It also works as an extra credit assignment or when there is a substitute teacher.

The graph consists of points in the first quadrant using ordered pairs with fractions. In order to create the state outlines we had to use the fractions 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, and 3/4. When finished, they can use markers, colored pencils or other medium to enhance the project.
