Elections – Teacher Resources

Our lessons, printables, and activities on the U.S. electoral process provide great teaching ideas for fall, especially during an election year. Explore election requirements for the federal government with your students. You'll also find great ways for students to get involved in local politics, like holding classroom debates or writing letters to representatives. Units on civil rights and women's history will benefit from resources on the American suffrage movement.
