About This Product

Students need a basic vocabulary to understand the United States system of elections. This engaging, low-prep resource. 12 Essential Election Terms for Middle School Review- Color by Number, provides a playful way for students to access or review key election terms.   The terms are: ballot, candidate, citizen, democracy, election, government, political parties, politics, propaganda, proposition, representative democracy, and vote. Although this activity is designed as a supplement to my vocabulary development lesson:12 Essential Election Terms for Middle & High School- Vocabulary Strategies, it works well as a standalone activity. There is a google link to a force copy document so you can easily edit the words to fit your needs.

The lesson includes the following:

What strategies can individuals employ to critically evaluate the influence of "propaganda" and "political parties" in elections, and how do these terms impact the formation of informed civic choices? 3. In what ways do concepts like "representative democracy" and "citizen" shape our understanding of government structures and the responsibilities of individuals within a democratic society?) related to the terms:
