So today my school taught an "Election Intensive," meaning that we spent all day teaching students things about the Presidential Election. Students played games, held mock presidential debates, read articles, did math relating to the Electoral College, and basically showed us everything they know about the current election.
Here are some highlights for you. According to my observations of students today:
Barack Obama wants to make gay people get married.
Oil comes from cows.
Governor Palin is cool because my dog came from Alaska.
John McCain wants to get rid of greenhouses.
John McCain is really, really, really, really ,really, really old, and he's going to have a heart attack the minute he gets into office.
We vote on November 4, and then they tell us who the winner is on January 20.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt served six terms before he was assassinated.
John F. Kennedy lost the election four years ago, despite the fact that the popular vote said he won. This was due to a mistake with the confederate college.
