A Guide to govlearn simulations

Are you a teacher wondering how to teach my simulations? Well, here is a guide to my two simulations and how you can organize them!


BRINGING ELECTORAL COLLEGE TO LIFE

What you need:

A computer (you can choose to use the computer screen or connect to a projector or television)

At least 2 students

Two small bags

Small slivers of paper with state names on them


Instructions:

Explain the two party platforms to your students. Divide the state papers evenly and randomly to the students. Turn on a blank electoral map on 270towin.com. Have the students put the state they believe would vote for a certain party in that party bag. Read the state votes and calculate the winner.


GOVLEARN POLITICAL PARTIES JEOPARDY:

A computer (you can choose to use the computer screen or connect to a projector or television)

At least 2 students


Instructions:

Go to https://www.playfactile.com/govlearnpoliticalparties. Split the students into teams (there can be 1-5 teams) and have them select categories and amount of money.



I hope this was helpful! Learn, explore, and most importantly, have fun!


Happy GOVLEARNing!
