General
How I Use It
I really like this game. I really will give my students an understanding and importance to do research on candidates in an election year. This activity will be a great overall understanding of the election process.
My Take
I really like this activity as a teaching tool. I really will make students think about who they should vote for and the process of an election. I feel that the real-world connection is important in this activity. Students need to know that there is not a candidate that will match every one of their views. It is a little long for 5th graders, especially if they struggle in reading, but I like how the vocabulary words are defined. I am a big fan of icivics and this activity is another one I will use in the classroom.
