Finding theme–supporting with evidence: a look at the race for President
This cross curricular activity has kids looking at THEME and the current political campaigns. I link to a New York Times page that lists the candidates, from there they can Google a certain number of candidates and decide what the THEME is of that candidates campaign. THEN with the evidence they gather, they can then answer 5 R.A.C.E.S. questions.
This project was designed as a grade recovery for a grade level test for 7th Grade.
