In the next few months, our nation will be electing a new president. Our children are not too young to learn about the in’s and out’s of our election system. This is a very exciting time and they should be a part of it! Who will be our next president? Will it be Hillary R. Clinton or Donald J. Trump? How did these two candidates get chosen to run for president anyway? What are political parties? What is a campaign? Our children are full of questions – this unit study will help them find some answers!
The 26 page Election 2016 Unit Study takes three weeks to complete, and will answer all of the above questions and more. You will read three fantastic books on American politics: See How They Run: Campaign Dreams, Election Schemes, and the Race to the White House, Presidential Elections and Other Cool Facts, and Madam President: The Extraordinary, True (and Evolving) Story of Women in Politics. Your child will learn about how the American government works, how the electoral college works, why we have a two party system, and more. They will research the two presidential candidates, color a map on election night as each state’s votes are counted, complete a writing project and more. There are 13 total activity pages included. This unit is aimed at upper elementary children (ages 8 – 10) but can easily be used with a wide age range.
The 2016 elections are coming up really soon, so you don’t want to miss out on this wonderful opportunity to study U.S. Government and the election process with your children. May the best candidate win!
