If you’re looking for something quick, easy and fun for your students to do, to go along with your school’s mock election
for the 2016 Presidential race
, this “Flip the Flap for Facts” is wonderfully simple.
Students can practice their research skills
and find X number of facts (I ask for 3), about each candidate via books, magazines, newspapers or on the Internet.
Older kiddos can cite their sources on the back.
I’ve also included some general biographical and campaign information
on all 4 candidates that you can share with your students as well.
These can be read as non-fiction passages
for older students.
Run off the pattern, which children fold
to create “flaps” for “flipping”.
Underneath they write their “bulleted” facts
Give students a star sticker to place on their favorite candidate.
When everyone is done, have students share their “flipper flapper” with the class, telling one interesting fact that they found.
Besides the BW template
for students to color, I’ve also included a pattern in color, as well as a completed set of facts
, so that you can quickly and easily make a sample
Completed projects make a terrific bulletin board
I’ve included 2 patriotic posters
for the center of your display.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy finding and flipping for facts about our 2016 Presidential election
