Whether it is an election year or not, if you are studying the U.S. Electoral College, this is a great resource for your classroom.
Suggestions for Use:
* If it is an election year, you can assign it for students to complete on election night.
* Not an election year? You can still use it! Simply assign students to complete the assignment for a specific presidential election.
* Study a variety of past presidential elections in U.S. History and how the electoral college voted! This would be a wonderful cooperative groups activity where each group completed (and reported their findings) on a different election.
