need election resource (5th grade)

I'm looking for a reading and/or activity that will explain Presidential elections. (I admit I don't understand the electoral college and that whole mess.)

I know of a good unit on TPT, but it is a week-long at least. I'm looking for a one-lesson (45 minutes?) activity I can do with my students. I know, one activity is tough, but I only see my students in-person 2 days a week. I don't have the time (or energy/patience to deal with this whole dumpster of an election year....).

Do you have any resources/links/great TPT products?

Thank you!

You might try Read Think .org
I think it's free & there are various levels of readability.

There are several great articles at Scholastic News. You donít need a subscription to access. They have one on the electoral college and one specifically about the presidential race.
