Activity Overview

Students will outline the significance of the election of 1800 by examining the 5 Ws of the election. By researching these basic subjects, students will gain a general understanding of the candidates and their political beliefs, allies, and party affiliation. They'll explain and analyze and apply them to their understanding of the electoral process, and describe how this process unfolded in the 1800 elections.

Students will answer the following questions:

  • WHO was involved in the Election in 1800?
  • WHAT was the political significance of the Election in 1800?
  • WHERE did the Election of 1800 occur?
  • WHEN did the Election of 1800 occur?
  • WHY was the Election of 1800 important?
