I love the Election page! The timing is perfect. We just put up a page of
election links on our district and I'll add this one. It is very user
friendly and has great information.
Doris and I (Doris teaches 5th grade) have begun our Women's Suffrage
project and today the kids examined the documents I printed out from LC
and they brainstormed the strategies that were used back then to try and
sway opinions. Tonight for home learning the kids are going to examine
newspapers, tv, etc. and see if they can come up with strategies
politicians are using today.
If any of you are interested in more women suffrage sites, these are
places with good info.
Thanks for the great site, Leni!
