If you ran for president, you would have to do a lot of hard work. You would study the nation’s problems, tell the American people about your platform, select a running mate, and debate your opponents on live television. This lesson includes a video of Lonnie Chavis, Parker Bates and Mackenzie Hancsicsak reading If I Ran for President and a Teacher's Guide (grade 2-3).

This is awesome! I saved this one too! Love that it calls for the student to research how to and learn history a well as goal setting. In this political climate, this is great resource.

Good questions for building background knowledge, which is the objective of the lesson. There are also cross-curriculum activities in addition to a writing and reading response for students. I could see the actors reading the story engaging for students. Perhaps the description could include the lesson objective.

I agree with your observation. It is very important for our youth to learn about our political system.
