Election Issues

View and examine video of presidential and vice-presidential debates. Learners select one issue from the debate and write a paragraph about whether they agree or disagree with the candidates. The class then holds a mock election debate, in which two students pose as candidates and a third student plays a moderator. Others in the class ask questions. For your fourth graders, this activity will require support from you to provide structure.
