In this highly-engaging lesson, students examine the results of the past 6 elections to understand trends, electoral votes, the value and importance of a swing state, and the thoughts behind campaign strategy. Students complete a guided worksheet where they use information from the past 6 elections to draw conclusions and interpret data. Students learn the importance of a swing state and which states are best left alone in the campaign process. In the end, students create a campaign plan on which states they will target based on their historical analysis and research!
Very informative and engaging! Two additional articles are included to highlight the value and importance of a swing state!
