Election Results Map Worksheet / Activity

Hi.

Politics aside, evaluating the results of the 2012 election is a valuable activity. It gives students practice reading charts and data. Additionally, they'll review some geography and gain a better understanding of the American electorate system.

This activity took my seventh grade students about an hour to complete.

I hope that you like it.

Those 'tiny little colonies on the East coast' are states, and have been states for the past few hundred years.

Ha.

No disrespect intended:
I suppose that I've been spending too much time covering the American Revolution.

Anyway, welcome to the Union.

If you really want to blow their minds, look at election results by county:
