How to Let Your Students Run for President!

As the election season is here, this is a time for getting your students fully immersed into all things that are... presidential. So, how would you like to host your own version of the presidential campaign right in your classroom? 

Here's a very ingenious website that virtually takes your students through the steps of running for President... virtually! Each student just submits their name or an alias, an avatar, their gender, their party of choice, and choose the top three political issues that they feel most passionate about, and the site will generate a campaign video! It's a really good way to involve your students into the election procedures.

About Me

My Photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
