Election Day in Room 40

 We have been learning about elections the past two weeks.  We read books about elections and completed activities.  Yesterday was the big day!  We voted for president.  After checking the students' voter registration card, I let the students pick up a ballot.
Next they took their ballot to our private voting booth.  We know that who we vote for is personal and that we don't have to share with anyone.

After they completed their ballot (no names, of course!) the students put their ballot in our ballot box.
After we all voted we tallied the votes.  In our classroom President Obama won.  He also was the winner in our school-wide election.  We knew that we could be happy if we voted for President Obama but that we wouldn't make too big a deal of it so people who voted for Governor Romney would be unhappy.  It was a great learning experience and the kids had fun!!
