PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I created this PowerPoint presentation as a way to prepare my third-graders for a class election. I wanted to teach them that it's not only the responsibility of Americans to vote, but to be informed voters.
The first section is "What is a Presidential Election?" and is for sale individually in my product listings. It covers a wide array of informational about the election process. It can be used as first teaching for an introduction to presidential elections, or as a review for older grades who just need a refresher before a mock election. Topics covered include:
-What is government?
-What does government do?
-What are the branches of government?
-Who is the President?
-What does it take to be President?
-What is a Political Party?
-What is Congress?
-What is the Electoral College?
-How do different states vote in the Electoral College?

The second section focuses on facts about the major party candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Is a non-biased, bipartisan look at the basic backgrounds, experience, and political positions of both candidates from a simple, elementary-appropriate perspective. Political positions discussed are:
Trade
Immigration
Environment
Taxes
Health Care
Gun Control

This presentation is appropriate for most elementary and middle classrooms (grades 2-6 suggested).
