The students have been studying the election process since mid-September. They have defined election vocabulary, researched the election process, visited the County Election Board, designed and hung posters around the campus to advertise the big day, and this past Tuesday they hosted a Mock Election for approximately five hundred second, third, and fourth grade students on Southwest campus.
Each GT student worked the election in one hour shifts. They manned the sign-in table, ballot box, handed out "I Voted" stickers, and counted ballots.
The students announced the winner during Rise & Shine Wednesday morning to cheers from the campus. They were so excited Hillary Clinton had won ( I don't think they realized their winner was not the nation's President-elect).
I can't wait to meet with them this week to hear their thoughts on the big day: What worked, what didn't work, what could we do differently next time...
