Activity Overview


Introducing students to new terminology at the beginning of a history unit will help them better understand what they're learning about. In this activity, students will create a spider map that illustrates and defines key terms of the election process. Students should be encouraged to select words they are more unfamiliar with, as this will help them expand their understand.

In an extension activity, teachers can display just the illustrations that students have created to the class, and have students guess which term it is. Students would be able to show off their creativity to their peers while being engaged in a challenging review activity to reinforce the main concepts from this unit.
