Race to the White House!

10 10 2008

Did you know that this November 4th will be a very important day? That is because it is the day that a new President of the United States is chosen! The presidential nominees for 2008 are John McCain and Barack Obama.

 In the month before the election we are going to be getting you excited about the presidential race! Do you know how someone becomes president in the first place though? It may be more complicated that you think!

The educational website, BrainPOP Jr., has a great video about the president’s roles and how the President of the United States is chosen. The site also offers tons of great activities, like drawing your favorite president, writing an acrostic about the president, vocabulary words, and even fun presidential jokes! Best of all, you can print most of the activities if you don’t want to do them directly on the computer!
