Candidates On The Road
Divide the class into campaign teams and assign each team one candidate to follow along the campaign trail. Give each team a large map of the United States and post all maps on a bulletin board. Assign each team a color that will represent its candidate. Have students read newspapers and magazines and watch network and/or local nightly news each week in order to see all types of campaign-event coverage.
