Students will be introduced to the concept of elections. They'll talk about how decisions are made from elections and when they are held. They will then look at some things that people in the US can vote for. They will also discuss the requirements for voting: be a citizen of the United States, be at least 18 years old, and cannot be a criminal. They will study the voting process that includes registering to vote, learning about the candidates, casting the vote, and finding out the results.
Students will learn what a ballot is and vote for their favorite subjects, colors, and foods using the ballot in the lesson. Next, students will discover that candidates debate on issues and try to persuade people to agree with them. Students take a look at two different (fictitious) candidates and decide who they would vote for. They will then watch a video to review the voting process.
