Product Description
Overview:
"Let's Get The Party Started!" This presidential election simulation is an excellent way for students to comprehend all aspects of political parties, and the campaigns needed to elect a presidential candidate.

Teacher will divide class into groups of 4 to 5 students per group. Each group will develop their own political party and choose a presidential candidate to represent their party. Using the included criteria, allow students a few class periods, or portions of class periods, to create, form, and practice presenting their party until election day. On election day, candidates and their political parties will present their campaigns to other classes, staff, and/or your own classroom. If desired, have all those that heard the campaigns vote for the best candidate/party. Download this Campaign Simulation for a fun, educational lesson that your students will remember for years to come. "Lets get the party started!"

What's Included:
- Detailed student guided handout for creating a party name, logo, slogan, planks, platform, propoganda, presentaions, etc...
- Grading rubric
- Complete directions for running a successful presidential campaign

TEACHER REVIEW: "...I was blown away by how excited the students, parents, and other elementary grades were....The students took the assignment and were crazy-creative, invested, and begging for more time. Groups were getting together at each other's houses just to work more, new friendships were made, and our presentation day was a huge hit! This is going to be a 5th grade tradition!"
