Voting! It's fun and mental! But don't get bogged down in planning a whole unit. Use this to streamline voting into one or two days. Here is what you get with this unit.
1.) A clear and concise history of voting, complete with Constitutional language, court cases, and state and federal law.
2.) An activity with US Census Data (the most recently published is 2008) to examine who votes and who does not. Answer key included!
3.) A graphic organizer to help kids visualize expansions in suffrage
4.) The Suffrage expansion project.
If you are teaching classes of diverse abilities, this is for you. Enjoy!
