Two Weeks to Go!

With just two short weeks left until Election Day, it's a great time to talk about how America elects its Presidents. It's quite a complicated process and one that many citizens know very little about.

I found this video that tries to give a simple explanation. It's called "Electing a US President in Plain English" and it's courtesy of www.commoncraft.com . Take a look, and share it with your child, friends, and family. It's quite informative and with this year's election being the most important and historic one, perhaps, in our lifetime, I think it's helpful to understand the process. And it's a great chance to explain how this all works to our children, the voters of the future!

Enjoy!

Excellent idea! We take our children to the polls every time there is an election. We've even pulled out the old School House Rock tapes and shared those lessons with them as well. Keep up the good work!
