Lesson Plan

Cast Your Vote

In a simple but unique lesson, youngsters learn about the history of voting systems. They then collaborate in groups to develop a new honest and consistent voting method. A class-wide poll is taken, evaluating the designs of other groups. This would be a fun lesson to do in November around election time!
