Project Cards give links to video clips, teacher guides and classroom activities to be done in preperation or pre-activities to the Election Project itself. The activity listed is the basis for the unit but the alternative variation suggested would really build on the upcoming election and give the students good hands-on practice of the election process. Voter registration cards, ballots, comic strip template, I have voted sticker templates, and ballot box cover page to glue on a box all add to the realism of an election. This is set up for several weeks starting with classroom research and study of of government - choice of constitution of presidential candidates or election process overall. The rubric for the project and the HOT Question cards are set up to prompt thought and build cognitive development. Then proceeding the actual research is the mock election day activity. Rubric also included which is set up for "HOT" (Higher Order Thinking) activities.
