Three to four days worth of activities - This was a huge hit with my students! This lesson includes short bios for each candidate (still in the election as of March 2016) and their policy positions on key issues. This lesson also includes a voting ballot for students to independently decide who they would vote for as well as a compare / contrast activity for election results, persuasive letter WITH rubric (for easy teacher assessment), and paraphrasing activity WITH rubric (for easy teacher assessment).
Ready to print and use! It is also editable.
Great for understanding how the election works, information about candidates, independent thinking, and informational text.
