Election Lessons

Thursday, July 17, 2008

If you are interested in discussing the upcoming elections with your kids, PBS has some great resources online. There are lesson plans for elementary and secondary aged kids. Great discussion points include every thing from democracy and it's U.S. history, why you should vote, political cartoons, the creation of political parties, past Presidents and more. There are some great ideas for helping kids explore the issues and think about what issues are most important to them and why. I highly recommend taking a look. Lots of interesting stuff here.
Find even more resources at Weekly Reader, and Congress for Kids.
