Elections and Voting Resources – Middle School Monday

Books and a video for elections

Part of what I love about homeschooling is all of the resources that I can throw in front of the girls. They don’t have to use them but just having them around means that something will get viewed, even if not devoured in depth. So, as I have noted before, I keep stocked book baskets. Since we are working on an elections study (see the Home School In The Woods review on the Hands-on History Lap-Pak: U.S. Elections), I went through the library and found tons of books and videos for us to have around. Here’s what stocked out basket for the past few weeks.


(I don’t have pictures. From our library, we only get to keep videos for one week so I really have to plan! And I forgot to plan to take pictures.)

Schoolhouse Rock! Election Collection! – a wonderful collection of songs explaining different parts of our government and history


All of these were interesting in one way or another. Depending on how your student enjoys getting their information, some of these might work better than others. There are all levels of reading in this group!

    Great selection of resources; I realized we were neglecting this the other day when talk turned to politics and my nephews had ideas and view and my kids were asking “who’s that?!”

      It is so easy to skip! When it is not something you enjoy, and I definitely don’t enjoy the debate part of politics and voting season, it is easy to just breeze right past.

    My kids have read several of those books before. Great list of resources.
