Classroom Elections

It’s that time again. Election information is everywhere you turn. Although kids may not fully understand the political scene, this is a great opportunity to embrace the events in our country and use them as a learning platform. Lessons in politics and government are a great place to start.

You can come up with imaginary (or real) positions, such as class president, playground mayor, library council, lunchroom representative, and free-time secretarty. Use your imagination. Give each position some specific roles and walk the kids through the campaigning and election process.
