This upcoming week is election week. I wanted a fun activity to get my class excited about elections and voting. We just got finished voting on our favorite character pumpkins, so they are really excited about the voting process.
I still have candy on my mind after Halloween and all, so what better way to learn about elections that with candy. We are going to have our very first M&M Election. The recording forms are all open-ended so you can choose which M&M flavors you'd like to include.
I chose these 4 flavors-
Candy Corn (Halloween Flavor I got on clearance)
Students will taste test each flavor and then record their observations/descriptions about that candidate... I mean flavor.
Next, students will get to cast their vote for their favorite candidate...I mean M&M.
