Examining the Election!

Whew!  There’s a lot going on in the Linda Nolen Library right now!  First off, Ms. King and I have been working for the last few weeks on a collaborative project to teach her kiddos about the upcoming presidential election.  We’re using an awesome project that I found on Teachers Pay Teachers but we’ve tweaked it to hit English/Language Arts, Social Studies, and Information Literacy standards for our kids.  Here are a few pictures of their work so far.

So far, the kids have learned to identify the candidates for the 2016 election.  They know basic election vocabulary, who is eligible to vote, and how to vote.  We’ve begun talking about the voter registration process and today the kids get to use Google Forms to practice filling out a voter registration form online.  I think we’re set to have some election savvy students.
