Presidential Elections are coming up in the United States. Even among children there is high interest in this tradition that occurs every four years. This election will prove to be a historic one. For younger students, the way US Presidents are elected can be confusing. The Tech Ninja created this Notebook activity for his third grade students but it could be used or modified for other grades or age groups.
