Election-Voting Fun!

This is what we did for our 3rd Grade November Election!  We had so much fun making I VOTED TODAY hats.  This activity, including the hats and talking about presidential election, might seemed time consuming, but turned out to be much simpler than expected and well worth the time!

I pre-cut 1 inch  strips from red  8 1/2 X 11 regular paper.  You can cut the paper horizontally or vertically.  Cutting smaller strips was easier.  I copied the I VOTED TODAY! stars on bright yellow paper and the smaller stars on blue paper.  Then my kiddos just glue everything onto white sentence strips.  

Super quick voting box: I took an blue empty tissue box and added some yellow die-cut stars to each sides.

Instead of asking the students to vote for a president.  I asked the students to choose 3 things that we could vote for that we would want at the end of the week if our group earned the most points.

We use the voting strips from No Monkey Business (created by Michelle Harper).  Click on Michelle Harper's Election Day Freebie.

Hope you enjoy!
