Reflection: Real World Applications A Tuesday in November: Election Day - Section 2: Application


Although teaching about Elections during a Presidential Election year is exciting, the kids will really get into this activity about choosing a Fictional Character as President.  All of the comparing and contrasting, and campaigning, etc. can still take place, and it will go as far as you take it!  The kids will benefit from the basics of elections and creatively respond to the activity.
