Comments about this resource include:

Thank you for the clear explanations of ALL the parts of the presidential election. Ideas like delegates and the electoral college can be hard to understand. So glad you included them! Thank!

I totally love this unit! It is super cute, super creative, and has engaging activities to use with my students ; )

I was looking for an easy, but fun way to get my students involved with the upcoming election. So far, so good! I'm excited about your activities! I especially like that they will be able to conduct their own research about the candidates.
