The kiddos each had their own ballot.
Then they dropped them in our ballot box.
Then we tallied up the votes. Of course, I take every opportunity to sneak authentic math into everything we do. Counting votes gave us a great chance to talk about "greater than" and "less than" and the differences between.
We also talked about how to appropriately react when either your candidate did win the election or did not. This experience made learning about government and democracy so much fun and relevant to them! I hope you enjoy talking about the kids' voting opportunity today!
