Are you studying the Electoral Process this year?

We are going to tackle this topic this fall. I hope to get us started next week, as a matter of fact. We studied it 4 years ago, but my boys were younger then, so it is time for a review. It also works as part of a high school student’s government and civics credit.

You are probably aware that I use the unit study KONOS to tie my school day together. The election unit is no different. I am going to be using the book, “Electing America’s Leaders.” And this year I am able to offer this book on my website. (I love being able to sell products that I believe in!) And I am going to go a step further and sign up for the online tutorial at www.homeschoolmentor.com. For $30, Jessica Hulcy will give me the training and background I need to do a bang up job this year! I am a lillte short on time to research and dig deep, so why don’t I pay Jessica to tell me what I need to know! So for a paltry $45.00, I will be able to teach my children about the electoral process. Sounds like a GREAT deal to me!

I am also going to use a resource I found from Time Magazine for Kids to have a brief biography and picture of each of our Presidents. It’s aptly named, Presidents of the United States. Another cool resource is a Fandex of the United States Presidents. I got one at Barnes and Noble during the last election, so I am going to use it as well.

Hope this helps you in your quest this year!

  1. I really like the Woodrow, the White House Mouse (and others) series by Barnes & Barnes. Here are the titles we have – there may have been more produced in the years since I bought these four:

    Woodrow for President
    Woodrow, the White House Mouse
    Marshall, the Courthouse Mouse: A Tail of the U.S. Supreme Court (yes, it’s “Tail” LOL)
    House Mouse, Senate Mouse

    I was blessed to find these at a convention one year and got 3 of the 4 in hard-cover, AUTOGRAPHED. Pretty neat and I rely on them still.

    I’ve seen them at libraries too… if your library doesn’t have a copy of each, ask that they order them – they are REALLY fun books and make a great electoral end-cap at the library for the children’s section. :-)
