Voting And Civics Pack- Featured Book: Teedie

$10.00

Teddy Roosevelt was one of the most influential presidents the US has ever known.  Using a book about his boyhood as a launch point, this unit pack explores civics and voting as well as opinion writing and research gathering.

Providing civics focused language arts activities for PreK- Grade 2, this activity pack starts by introducing the concept of voting through dramatic play.  Next, we have a vote of our own with provided ballots, explore the structure of authority in our lives, and talk about what makes a good leader.  As kids advance, we move to writing an opinion piece and doing research to gather presidential facts. We also do a close reading compare/contrast activity between Teddy Roosevelt and his oldest daughter Alice. The final activity focuses on ways that individuals impact democracy, including reaching out to our congress people.
