If your family follows politics, and watches the news, I am sure your children know that the Presidential Election is only one year away! It is going to go by fast! With all the excitement over a new president, and all the debates that are in full swing, what better time then to teach your children about the election process and election day?
There are so many resources to involve your children in learning about the elections. I actually like to take the entire election day to use some of these resources with my kids. I always bring them to the polls with me too. They love to watch the voting and get their sticker on the way out. You can also have them do their own mock elections within your family or with friends from a homeschool group.
