Here is our process:
1. Identify the candidates (cookies!!)
2. Research and learn about each type of cookie. To do this the second graders are assigned a cookie and need to create a commercial to convince the rest of us that their cookie is the best. The used the app ChatterPix to create and share their commercials.
3. Register to vote.
4. Participate in a cookie election!
5. Enjoy the winning cookie (Oreo was the winner!!).
Because of the election this year, Kennedy also hosted Kids Vote and all students were able to participate in a mock election for president. It was a great tie in with our voting unit.
