The first 2 weeks of November our First Graders participated in our Election unit. We read books with 3 different candidates: Duck, Grace, and Otto. Students were encouraged to discuss the character traits of each candidate and consider who would make the best president.
After learning about each candidate, students joined campaigns to make posters for their chosen candidates. On Friday, it was finally time to fill out our ballots, grab our Voter’s Registration cards, and head to the voting booth!
Friday afternoon it was time for the results. All of first grade gathered in the cafeteria to hear the results of the 2022 election. The ballots were tallied and this year’s winner was Otto!
