Deciding not to reveal presidential candidates by name in our mock election helped to spark some serious debates over the major issues concerning their platforms. I had tons of kids to tell me how much they enjoyed the voting experience including getting their “I Voted” sticker as they left the voting booths. Many teachers also made a point to visit to talk about some of the wonderful discussions going on in their classrooms and as well as those being overheard in the hallway. Huge thanks to social studies teachers for helping to make the event a success!
