Frugal Homeschooler: Election Resources

Since we are right in the middle of the Presidential election it is the prefect time to introduce your kids the the election process.

NARA has the Electoral College site. It has teacher resource, electoral calculator, and more. The teachers resources seem to have great things for kids of all ages.

VA Joe's has an issues calculator that helps you figure out which candidate matches up your views best.

Pocantico Hills
has a presentation for kids on the President.

Lastly, don't count out Wikipedia. They have a pretty complete piece on the electoral college that even includes a map with the votes broken out.

Lydia at www.littleblueschool.com has written a unit study on elections for homeschooled children. It's available for free on her blog.

I have written two blog posts on this too. One is about good children's books on the presidency and election and the other has a link to CSPAN resources.
