The Presidential Election will be here before we know it . Since this is a very important event for the United States that only happens every four years, it is important to discuss and educate even the littlest of learners. I always love combining social studies with literacy so I created an Election Day Emergent Reader. It is perfect for preschool, kindergarten, and first grade students.
Give students the opportunity to learn more about the 2016 Presidential Election, the candidates, and more through an exploration of the Scholastic and Time For Kids Election pages. Students can simply scan the included QR codes to go straight to the webpages. There is also a printable included in this pack for students to reflect and write about what they learned. If you'd like to make this activity easier or more challenging for your students, you can make changes on the TeacherSherpa…
Having a classroom election related to the classroom or a school student council is a great way to get students excited to learning about the election process. As well as teach about what it means to have the right to vote.
This project includes art (paper self-portrait), fine motor skills (cutting red strips for flag), math (counting fingerprint "stars"), AND language skills all wrapped up in a social studies lesson. GENIUS!
