We did a mock election with the third graders! We talked about the four candidates for president, we looked at a brochure that talked about the candidates that were up for election (from judges, to sheriffs, presidents, congress people--we discovered there were a lot of people running for some type of office this time around!). For the official unofficial voting, Hillary Clinton won with the student population. Hopefully none of the students stayed up until 2:00 AM to find out the actual winner of the presidential election--unlike one of our grade-level teachers! Here is a great video from Kid President to open some lines of communication with your child to talk about some manners to have if you disagree with people. I am sure we know a handful of adults that could benefit from a viewing of this as well!
