This pack provides lesson ideas and activities to help teach Grade 3-6 children about the Presidential Election system in the USA.
The pack includes a fully animated 7 minute 5 second movie which gives a background to the Presidential Election system in child-friendly language. It includes cool graphics and exciting music, sounds and animations that are sure to appeal to a younger audience.
The activities pack is 29 pages long and begins with a Cool Kids KWHL chart to brainstorm facts already known, things they want to know, and how they will go about finding out. Through teacher input and independent research, children then build up biographies of the candidates, and research the key issues they represent. Finally, they use books and websites to research information for their own presentation to the class on their chosen candidate.
The movie is in MP4 format. Please contact me if you would prefer it as a Powerpoint animated slideshow.
Please note that any images in the activity pack and movie are purely representational and no political bias is intended.
