Westwood 1st graders learned about the voting process and how to determine the qualifications of candidates by reading Doreen Cronin’s book “Duck for President.” After reading the book, students were asked the question “Do you think duck should be president?” Then they supported their yes or no answers with three statements.
The fun began for these 1st graders on Election Day when they got to vote on the best tasting cookies! Oreo and Chocolate Chip were the top two candidates on the ballot. Kids entered the voting booth to vote for the best tasting cookie! After all the votes were in, the students tallied them and graphed the data.
And the winner is . . .
Oreo, winning by seven votes!
Chocolate Chip 12
