Candy President
3rd Grade TEAM Teachers
Monday, November 02, 2020
To bring the election process to life, third grade students held a candy election. Teachers chose candy because it is something students have a strong opinion about and can relate to.  They started by choosing two candy parties...fruity and chocolate. Then, students held a primary election to narrow it down to their two candidates, Starburst and KitKat.  From there, students campaigned for their candidate by creating slogans, posters, and buttons.  Each party prepared a debate speech to try to persuade voters.  A general election was held with the final vote results of 38-Starburst, 18-KitKat.  After the popular vote was determined, students gathered as the electoral college.  While this is a very difficult concept to understand, third graders grasped the idea by taking part in a simulation.  With over 270 of the electoral votes and the majority of the popular vote, Starburst is our new Candy President!
