Unit studies have primarily been our favorite way to learn, and this year will be no different. We’ll be using the updated version of Amanda Bennett’s Elections unit study, just as we did in 2012. You can read a blog post where I show how we set up our notebook for the 2012 Election — these same ideas can be used for 2016. Since Ben is 4 years older, we can go a lot deeper. It’s hard to imagine, but in the next Presidential election in 2020, he will be old enough to vote! I feel it is very important for him to gain respect now for how this process works, especially in light of the freedoms that seem to be diminishing day-to-day lately.
