Happy Wet Thursday!
Today we learned about reasons we elect and vote for for candidates! We answered questions like: Why do people for one candidate over another? What characteristics do those candidates have? How does a candidate persuade you to vote for them!
Next, I typed up a "mock ballet" with 17 characteristics that each student then had vote on. They needed to match up each student to a characteristic. For example, Best Smile, Creative, Math Brain, Game Player, etc. They also had to vote for themselves.
Finally, we shared our results and discussed the outcomes! Many were surprised with the results and were pleasantly surprised by what their peers thought of them!
