Campaign 2012: Last Minute Lesson Plans

Take Some Time to Discuss the Presidential Campaigns with the Young People in Your Life

In these final days of the presidential campaigns, take some time to READ and DISCUSS such topics as the president's responsibilities, the process of voting and voting rights, and how to make sense of the nonstop campaign rhetoric.

Get all the information, discussion questions, and activities
for use at home or at school you'll need  in our Race to the Ballot: The Our White House Presidential Campaign and Election Kit for Kids!

And have fun with our activity ideas, such as inviting kids to write their own stump speeches,  make their own campaign tokens, analyze the rhetoric of a particular campaign ad, and play a presidential trivia game! Click here for these activities and MORE!

And be sure to check out our American history anthology Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out, a perfect partner in engaging our kids in this historic election cycle with essays, poetry, paintings, photographs, and more! Our White House is available in both hardcover and paperback from Candlewick Press.

Ask for Our White House at a library of bookstore near you!
