Election Day {Dinner}

The public schools in our county were closed today. We still did school today, but with an emphasis on the election. I had the children watch a YouTube video that explained the electoral college. Then, they had to color a United States map with their predicted electoral votes.  image

We also studied the requirements to be president. We talked about voting in the past and voting in other countries. They learned that the right to vote is a privilege that not everyone has.

We decorated the kitchen with patriotic decorations.

Dinner was lasagna with red sauce.

There was a red, white, and blue cake for dessert.

I hope that this election day is a memorable one for my children. I hope that they learned something; most of all, I hope they know that voting is a privilege that they should take seriously.
