Middle School Covers the Elections!

Students across all middle school grades participated in learning activities in Social Studies classes to prepare for, and follow along with, Election Day. 5th graders designed their own candidate, complete with a particular stand on key issues, and examined political cartoons related to the presidential candidates. 6th graders used a sample ballot as the means for discussing important issues in politics today. 7th graders analyzed political commercials while also discussing the structure and purpose of the Electoral College, and 8th graders explored the presidential candidates’ positions on issues. Our students are very politically aware, and we are proud of their efforts to be informed, responsible citizens!
