Class Election

Mrs. Abernethy's class elected their class president today on election day. Congratulations to the new class president, Melia!

The election included a primary, a political convention, several class debates, campaign speeches, a trip to the polls, and of course a class election. Students used the electoral votes from the states they chose to research as their voting power. Of course, they didn't know about this twist before the election! Lucky Emily chose California and had 55 electoral votes!

Enjoy pictures from some of the events. You can see more projects related to the election on the Journeys Response Blog.
