This document has students looking at the reasons behind voting. I thought this would be helpful for you to use as a cheat sheet during class discussion or an activity for your classroom. I collected the information from Scholastic: Election 2012 online.
Please consider your students’ stamina during activities like this. Consider an interactive way to present the information to maintain interest and long term memory. Based on your classroom’s reading levels, decide how to deliver the information presented in the document as well. Remember, we are molding future citizens, and it is vital that this comes across as important information to know as a future voter. After all, they are our future, so let’s help make them an educated voter by “planting seeds” this year.
