Google is at it again!

Elections tools for teachers
The Mock Election

This year, Google is working with the National Student/Parent Mock Election to get students of all ages excited about the November elections. Students engage in activities to learn about the candidates and issues, then cast mock ballots that are counted along with those of millions of other students across the nation.

This year's Mock Election takes place on October 30, 2008. Enroll your classroom now.

I have never heard of this organization, but their work seems impressive. First graders I don't think will understand most of the info, but I will definitely pass it along to older students who may benefit. I remember a mock trial when my sister was in 6th grade - I was in 4th and not allowed to participate. Looking back, it was a good experience for the students and got them excited about something new.
