Election day in the classroom
Election day and voting does not have to be just for adults. Bring it into your classroom too. Explain what Senators, Congressman and Congresswomen do. Explain what the president does. You can explain it in simple terms depending on what age group you teach. Hold a mock election. Explain voting and ballots too. This is the perfect time of year to get a class pet such as a fish. Then vote to see what the fish should be named. Make or color American flags, discuss the USA and discuss what it means to be patriotic. What other activities do you have in your classroom that are related to election day?
