Election Time

on February 20, 2015

To help us learn about the role of the President of the United States we read 3 books about the main character wanting to be President.

This afternoon we had a pretend election and the three candidates were Duck, Grace, and a teacher. The students had to decide which candidate to campaign for and created posters. One representative from each party gave a speech why their candidate was the best.



When then had a rally to support our favorite candidate.

We then got in line to vote. We of course had to show ID (or name tag) and put our vote on the official ballot.


When voting closed we tabulated the results and found our winner and to my surprise it was the teacher!
