Social Studies: Election Simulation

First graders examine the processes and purposes of voting. They collect and analyze data and predict the outcome of a mock mayoral election. They create slogans, buttons, and speeches for the student-created candidates. Also, 1st graders create a Web page and post an electronic voting site and send out emails inviting the public to participate in their election.
