Today we talked about what an election was. Some of us knew that there was going to be a general election in this country on May 6th, and that it was a chance for adults to decide on who should run our country.

Then we ran our own election in the class! It helped us all to understand what it was all about. This is what we did:

First of all we chose three party candidates who believed in different things. Here is what they believed in:

Party A thought that people should be able to make money for themselves and their families. It Allowed rich people to keep most of their money.

Party B thought that people who make plenty of money should give lots away to help others. They wanted to spend lots of money on schools and hospitals.

Party C thought that we should put lots of our money into making the world
