Gerald and Piggie’s Election Day

Nov 8th, 2016

As part of the Annunciation 1st grade's IB unit How We Organize Ourselves, we did an inquiry into Group Decision Making. As part of this inquiry we held a mock election where Mo Willems characters Gerald and Piggie had campaign managers (students in first grade). They invited 2nd grade and kindergarten students to vote and attend campaign speeches. The first graders then were in charge of the polling stations (checking off names, handing out ballots, showing voters to the private booths, handing out 'I Voted' stickers after they voted, etc.)

The winner will be announced at the end of the day.
