#3. Presidential Election 2004
by Barbara J. Feldman
Presidential Election 2004 Printable (** for premium members only)
Because a democracy is a government led by its people, voting to elect our leaders is a vital responsibility. With November’s presidential election just four months away, the campaigns are heating up. Here are some online resources for kids and teens to learn about the American political process and keep up with the candidates.
BrainPOP: U.S. Presidential Elections
The BrainPOP movies are a perennial Surfnetkids favorite for elementary and middle-school kids. This one introduces the concepts of democracy, the two-party system, conventions, campaigning, voting and the electoral college. It even presents an overview of the 2000 tie-breaking Florida recount. After the movie, test your knowledge by taking the quiz, and then click on over to the Electoral College movie to learn more.
MTV: Choose or Lose
Created to mobilize twenty million potential voters under the age of the thirty, Choose or Lose is one part education, one part entertainment, and one part promotion. Best educational clicks for high-school students are Voting 101 (Political Conventions, What are Swing States?) and Vote Smart (position papers in printable PDF on topics such as the environment and health care.) Best just-for-fun click is “Their Heads, Your Words” where you can submit a funny caption for the picture of the week.
PBS: Kids Democracy Project
This PBS site for grades three to six is evergreen because it does not specifically cover the 2004 elections, but rather the process itself. “How Does Government Affect Me?” is the largest of the three sections, with pages of learning on topics as diverse as funding local schools to checks and balances in the three branches of the federal government. “President for a Day” is an interactive exercise where you learn all about the president’s duties by creating your own presidential agenda.
