With the 2020 presidential election fast approaching, it is important as educators that we come up with ways to teach students about this important event in history. Many special education students struggle with understanding basic concepts and vocabulary related to election day. This activity walks students through a variety of visual activities that get them to more meaningfully understand concepts like who the candidates are, what they look like, and even exposes them to a basic framework of what election day is all about through simple comprehension activities. This is a great resource for special education teachers with lower level students or ELL teachers looking to integrate ways to bring more relevant, real-world instruction into their classroom!

This activity is specifically formatted to be used with Google Drive and is compatible with Google Classroom. Google Drive is an amazing resource that many educators are now using as an interface to support 1:1 digital instruction in the classroom. I pair it up with Google Classroom (a free website) that allows me to digitally send each student in my class a copy of the worksheets that they later submit to me for grading. With this lesson, students are able to drag and drop a variety of objects into their correct locations. It is an amazing paper-free process and the kids LOVE working on these worksheets on the computer.

Please note: This unit has been used in special education classrooms with much success. If you feel like you need a more detailed lesson plan for your students, this may not be the best fit. This lesson was intended to introduce students with VERY limited reading and writing skills to the basic concepts of elections in a cognitively appropriate manner
