2015 2nd Grade Elections

We learned all about the roles and duties of mayors, governors, and presidents.  To make the content conceptual and to bring it to life, we went on the campaign trail!  Students wrote speeches and made campaign posters.  Students read their speeches aloud in the auditorium and the cafeteria.  Then we had a private election with official ballots.  We will tally the votes and we will form our class government!

Student tables will be in the following formation:

  • The Presidential Party (President and V.P.) in a group
  • There are 6 cities (4 students at a table makes a city) where each city has a mayor.
  • Every 2 cities (tables) makes a state where each state has a governor.

The elected government officials will have special duties around the room.  We had so much fun doing this!
