    I did this a couple of years ago with my six graders when I was student teaching and will do this again this year. I taught the students about political issues, platforms, political party etc. They got in groups and made a poster of their platform or issue they would like their president to have or what they would address if they were president. I then had them present these in class. Then they picked the party they wanted to belong to. I had cut out elephants and donkeys in blue, red and white. They then decorated these with sticker stars and glitter and put the presidential candidate they wanted to vote for. on another piece of white paper the same size of the elephant or donkey they wrote a small paragraph on why it is important to vote or a platform they felt was important. this was stapled underneath the elephant or donkey at the top so it could open. Put these on the BB and call it "We are Party Animals". I also made windsocks with them and put these up in the room. The windsocks were construction and crepe paper.
