    I Voted, Did You? | National Museum of American History

    There was a time when you voted in person at a polling place that you got a sticker or button that said you voted. Our state of Washington went to 100% mail-in voting a few elections ago, so we no longer go to polling places to cast our votes. People wore these stickers proudly and it encouraged others to vote on that special day. Take a trip to the past to see what they looked like. Vote Challenge: Do you think that you would be proud to share that you voted? Create your own stickers to hand out to the people in your life who can vote. Encouraging them to vote is a great way for you participate!

    Let’s map your mind after all of this voting and election information! Now, where did I put that x-ray machine? Actually, you’re going to be the one doing the mapping! First, watch this video on how to make a mind map. Then, create your very own mind map about the qualities or traits you would like your president to have. You could write “Qualities of a President” in the center bubble, and then the bubbles coming from the center will be your ideas or drawings about what would make a good president. Vote Challenge: Have a family member or friend draw a mind map of their own on this topic, and compare ideas!
