Presidential Election
Old 10-27-2012, 02:59 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #2

As a grade level, we have decided to create a ballot box and ballot for each student in our school. We are asking that each grade level have their students vote in our "Presidential Election" and then our 4th grade classes are going to count the votes. Our plan is to graph the votes in our school cafeteria for everyone to see. Also, one of the largest myths that we have found is that the students are convinced that whoever gets the most votes wins, no matter what, so we are going to use this time to teach about the electoral college. The 4th grade classes will use math to determine how many "electoral votes" each grade level will get and then we will determine the President based on that. We plan to do lots of math with the elections but will be doing it at the end of this week because students are out of school in North Carolina on Election Day.
