My last post on an election Resource to use with your students went over well. I had a request to continue sharing these resources, so today I have another one for you.
Today’s election resource is an iPad app. If you are lucky enough to have access to iPads, this would be a good app to use with your class. I don’t have a class set of iPads, but I do bring my personal iPad into the classroom and connect it to my projector to use with the whole class. We also will take turns using the iPad individually.
Anyway, today’s resource is an app called Prez Elect USA. It is a simulation game that allows kids to choose a political party, learn about the electoral college process, and the actual election process. You can also have the opportunity to manage the campaign, which I always find the most intriguing and baffling part of the election process. (Mainly because of the massive amount of money fundraised and spent on nasty campaign advertisements and the like. But that’s a post for another day and time!)
Check this app out and let me know what you think. There is no risk involved since it is FREE!
This is not a paid advertisement. I am just sharing some resources I have found and thought you might like.
