The purpose of our PBL was to educate our third graders in what it takes to be elected into office. The students chose committees to serve on and worked hard for their chosen party to help get them elected. Some of the committees that students served on were; making posters and commercials (they used an app called Chatterpix), writing speeches, making buttons, constructing and decorating the polling booths, and making a campaigning word wall complete with vocabulary and definitions.
We completed our 3rd grade Candy Election PBL on November 8th, Election Day. The kids and staff voted for either the Chocolate (Kit Kat and Hershey) or Chewy (Sour Patch and Gummy Worms) party. Mrs. Rock (Sour Patch) and Mr. Camp (Kit Kat) did a great job serving as our two presidential candidates. The Chocolate Party won the election!! Great acceptance/concession speeches were made. Thank you so much to our two administrators for helping us out. The students as well as all the teachers really enjoyed participating in the 2016 Candy Election!
Check out some of the fun times that were had by all!
