Election Lap Books


These are the lapbooks the girls made in the class they took about the Presidential Election Process. Each little book is filled with a written description of the different aspects of it. Every week for the last couple months they have been making and filling the little books with information and yesterday they glued them all down to make this fold out book. I think they liked it, the cutting and stuff kept them engaged when they weren't so enthused and were complaining about the info part. I know it sunk in more than they know as I heard them pretending to teach a class on this with their books in hand. I really like seeing them act out what is being put in. I heard a quote once about if you can teach something to someone else then you have truly learned it. I see that happening, when they don't even realize it.
