I have created a webquest for upper elementary-middle school classes called "Meet the Candidates." This is an award-winning project, updated for the 2008 election, with web 2.0 tools incorporated. The project is available at: http://eev.liu.edu/KK/election/meetthecandidates/index.htm

Your students will learn about candidates and elections as they participate in this timely project by working in teams to research platforms and policies, develop marketing plans, or plan for public awareness campaigns. All links are included. The project will culminate with a virtual election.

Would you like your class to participate in this project??

Deadline to join is: September 5th, 2008. Project must be completed by October 31st. To join: go to the project website, read through it, and then click on the 'teacher' page for directions on how to participate!

Hoping classes across the country will participate! Check it out!

This seems like an awesome project ! Students can learn so much from it!

I have one question, were third party and independent candidates considered and researched over the course of the project?
No, they won't be. Only Republicans and Democrats!--Karen
Hi Karen,

I hope your project is going well. I'm sure you have plenty of resources already, but, just in case, here is an interesting short video regarding four key issues in this year's election.
