Walpole MA Elementary School holds Mock Election

I know most people are like me and sick of hearing about politics, but this is a bit different, I find pretty cool and felt the need to share.  

I received a blog post from Nancy Carroll a Walpole MA teacher at the Boyden Elementary School this morning.    It was a wonderful post highlighting the children holding a mock election.    I thought what fun and a great hands on way to learn the election process and become interested and involved in the election process at such a young age.   Ballot box

You can read her post here.   Teaching is Elementary.    I actually subscribe to this blog and find it so interesting and enlightening to learn what the kids today are learning and how they are doing it.    Why not subscribe too?  

It started out just like our actual elections (only not as costly!)..

with campaign signs that the kids made up.  They adorned the school and the kids were holding them during the "election hours".   They actually had a check off process similar to that which I will be going through shortly.     The voting booths were set up with privacy screens just like my voting place and the most fun she says was the use of an antique vote counting machine on checkout!   

I will not tell you the results of their election, you will have to go on and read for yourself!    Election results. 

Walpole people, your teachers are really great and I am sure you are very proud of the work that they and the students are doing!  

A really big high five goes out to the Boyden School Walpole MA teachers!
