Winner Wednesday {The Great Debate: Pig vs. Wolf}

Winner Wednesday Header

Hello, October!  I’m excited to kick off my favorite month by linking up with Jennifer from A Dab of Glue Will Do and Sara from Sara J Creations for Winner Wednesday!

This month I’m sharing my newest product which is perfect for the upcoming election season…with all of the election process with none of the politics!

This is an 8 day literacy and social studies mini unit focusing on character traits, comparing and contrasting texts and the election process.

0448422883     0140544518

Start by reading your favorite version of The Three Little Pigs and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka.  Then investigate character traits of the Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf and compare and contrast the two books.

Next, students can select which character they believe is telling the truth and write their opinion from the point of view of the character.

Now get ready for the big election!

First, all voters need to register.

The campaign starts with “yard signs” to display around your classroom or school.

With the campaign underway, it’s time for the candidates to debate!  Use the debate question cards to host a classroom debate – complete with wolf or pig hats so students can dress the part.

When voters arrive they check in and sign the register.

Cast their ballotts….
