Tutorial: This is an activity on Voting & Elections. The product is a Student Study Guide with a Guided Notes Activity Worksheet including a Teacher Answer Key. The Student Study Guide with the Guided Notes Activity Worksheet references the Florida Students educational resources Tutorial: Election Time in Tutorial Town.
SS.7.C.2.7 Conduct a mock election to demonstrate the voting process and its impact on a school, community, or local level.
The students will learn what happens in the different stages of an election, from voter registration to primary elections to political campaigning to voting in the general election.
NOTE: This interactive tutorial is a companion to Evaluate the Candidates: Who Will You Choose, that I also offer in my store. I also offer this product in bundle form which includes Evaluate the Candidates: Who Will You Choose.
If you do not have a computer for each student, you can present the tutorial class activity completing each activity as you progress through the tutorial. If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace. Either way, students can then use the worksheet as a study guide for a quiz or the End of Course Exam.
