Welcome to Kids Decision 2008 Project!
Fifth grade students study the branches of government and citizenship/voting. Since this is a presidential election year, we are expanding this unit so students can compare
, and analyze
Students will form news reporting teams.
Each team will be able to choose a piece of election/government to explore and report on, examples: history of voting, presidential history, functions of government, importance of voting, campaign commercials, local voice (where is your voice heard).
Students will report findings through a news broadcast using video, podcast,or web page.
Other participating schools from around the United States will share and collaborate their research findings on wikispaces.
Students will conduct straw polls on survey monkey to compare and contrast our community/state with other classrooms. We are hoping to have representation from all regions.
Students will explore current candidates and issues.
The project culminates with students participating in an online mock election and analysis of voting patterns: class to other student voters, class the city and state and country.
