Making inferences about the 2000 presidential election

“Hanging chads.” While these two words may be infamous to most of us, few middle schoolers understand their importance to the presidential election of 2000. As an exercise in drawing inferences, class members examine a Mini Page article about the changes made in political policies and election laws prior to the 2004 election. They make inferences and then check the validity of their assumptions by conducting research. Directions for the activity, links to required resources, assessments, and modifications are included in the detailed packet.
