Day 30: The One Where We Actually Vote

At some point, Curriculum Partner and I decide that our Mathematics of Elections unit should focus on local politics (more relevant to the kiddos, we hope) and actually involve an election of some sort.

Today, we made the kiddos read candidate briefs (today was also full of heavy election jargon academic language), pulled and adapted from a local paper (and re-printed during 2nd period prep when I found typos. Ugh). Kiddos then asked other people about their candidate. Then we voted.
