Mock Voting Booths

In our libraries, I have created mock voting booths. The students are learning about the candidates and are encouraged to vote for who they believe should be president. This has been such a fun activity and it really gets kids excited about a civic duty many of us take for granted. It’s also been fun to actually research the candidates myself and decide who I believe would best lead our country.

 

Feel free to use my examples!

I used a trifold to display the information on each candidates. I got this information from Scholastic. Copyright is provided on each page. (After, I’ve introduced each candidate to the students.) Next to the candidate’s bio, there is an example of what it would look like if you wanted to vote for that candidate.

Taped to the table are the instructions for voting and an empty tissue box where you place your voting-ballot! It was easy to put together, but it’s been such a success and the kids are very excited.
