Get Out & Vote! Election Classroom Resources 2016

Election season is upon us!  Are you sick of all the ads yet?  Me too!  

But, between now and November 8th, I know the topic is going to come up in my classroom, so it'll be the perfect opportunity to teach them about the election process, the candidates, and hold a "real" election so they can cast their vote!

Just like in the real world - students have to register to vote before they can vote in our election at school.  Voting signs will be put up to keep our polling place quiet as they make important decisions!

After we hold our elections in the classroom, we will graph and analyze our data - integrating math and social studies!

I can't wait to use these non-fiction readers with my kiddos to teach them about the election process and how candidates become president as well as learning more about Hilary Clinton's and Donald Trump's background and their road to the White House!

45 Vocabulary Word Cards with definitions, vocabulary activities and Vocabulary BINGO

Host your own election!  Have students complete their voter registration card and cast their ballot at their "local" polling place.  I Voted! stickers also included (suggest printing on full 8.5x11" label sheets).  Then host your own Exit Poll or use ballots to create a data anchor chart and analyze your student's voting data.

After the election, use the Red States Blue States map to show which candidate won which state's electoral votes.  6 writing prompts included and graphic organizers about election day, presidents, and the election process.

Read Aloud activity sheets for fiction books about elections and running for president.

Split The Cat For President - Beginning, Middle, and End
Grace For President - Somebody Wanted But So Then Summary (and writing paper)
Vote! - Cause & Effect
Duck For President - Asking & Answering Questions
Vote for ME! - Inferencing
If I Ran For President - Timeline/ordering of events

And then...learn all about the candidates background and their life outside of the road to the White House.  A nonfiction reader about the Election Process also outlines how candidates make their way all the way to Inauguration Day and moving into the White House!

Now...Get Out And Vote!!
