It’s important that students learn about every aspect of the election process.
Your students want to learn and they love when given a chance to take charge of their learning! That is why My Teaching Library offers this U.S. Elections themed resource that will give them the opportunities they need to take charge, make decisions, collaborate and learn…all while creating a wonderful project!
This resource will give the students the opportunity to learn about different aspects of U.S. elections (both local and national elections) and at the same time give them choices as to what they want (or need) to focus on.
It will also give them the opportunity to choose how they want to work (alone or in a group) and how they present their findingsm using either a notebooking method or creating a lapbook. Of course, if you as the teacher, want (or need) to assign specifics and give them less control, you can do that as well. !
Several informational text pages have been provided but students should be encouraged to read books and find other resources to gather information. Perhaps they can watch an upcoming televised debate. Perhaps they can attend a townhall meeting or interview someone.
- Teacher pages for instructions, explanations and evaluations and more
- Sample questions to get students ‘thinking’
- Over 100 pages for students to select from when designing their projects! (These student pages have been created ‘in color’ but can easily be printed in b/w or grayscale to save $$$).
