Hello from Yosemite! This week we learned all about elections and voting! During workboards we made our own campaign posters.
We wrote speeches and pretended we were the President of the United States and we worked on a giant floor puzzle of the United States.
We also shined pennies with salt and lemon juice to try to reveal the President!
Our favorite event was on election day, when we held our own election for President of Yosemite! Our 2 candidates were Leo the Lion and Penny the Pig. After learning about each candidate, we cast our ballots in the voting booth.
Everyone got and “I Voted” sticker!
When the votes were counted, Leo the Lion was elected to be our class President, by a narrow margin of 8-7! Have a great weekend!
