Election Day Writing Prompts

By Lily Iatridis  November 4, 2014

Election Day Writing PromptsGrab your local paper!  

Election day is always an excellent opportunity to combine writing, current events, and critical thinking.

Use the writing prompts below to get your kids started.

1) Gather information (research): Who is running? What do they support or not support?  What else is being voted on in your area and why?

2) Take a position (persuasive): Who do you support? Why or why not?

3) Make predictions (critical thinking): What impact will this have on the area? What impact with this have on our family?

4) And for the little ones: What does the inside of a voting booth look like? What are all those signs in the neighbors'  yards about? Why are there so many choices to make?

Take a day, two days, or an entire week to explore the topic!
