It is so important for students to learn how to become educated and informed voters. Students can use news articles to compare and contrast the candidates on important issues such as foreign affairs, education, economy, and energy. They can also compare the candidates career and experience. This packet includes a graphic organizer for students to write about the Presidential candidate of their choice. This packet can be incorporated into class by integrating reading for information, writing and informational paper, and comparing/ contrasting the candidates. I have also included short video clip suggestions to keep students aware of what is going on in the election. There are also signs and voting ballots that can be used to hold your on election at your school.
