I was searching online today for vocabulary/language ideas for the upcoming election. Many of my students are discussing the election in social studies. I was not thrilled with what I saw out there. It did not seem to address my specific skills/needs of my students in terms of speech & language. Therefore, I created my own!
This activity pack is general and does not touch on specifics so it can be used again in 4 years!
