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.

I am in my last year of graduate school, and having to do observation, and student teaching has been great. Lesson Planet was one of the sites mentioned one day, since then I've gain so many new creative ideas through the lessons. Thank you Lesson Planet
