Unit Study: Election 2020

August 30, 2020

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? 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, and this unit study will help them find some answers!

The 26 page Election 2020 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 from which your child will learn about how the American government works, what the electoral college is, 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, as well as various other fun activities. There are 12 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 2020 elections are coming up very soon, so you don’t want to miss out on this wonderful opportunity to study the U.S. Government and the election process with your children. May the best candidate win!


NOTE: I update this unit every election cycle so that it remains current. Once the primaries are over and we know for certain who will be on the ballot, I’ll update the unit.
