Teacher...Otto...Duck? Roan Forest holds mock election

On Election Day at Roan Forest Elementary School, the first grade students completed their election unit by participating in a mock election. After reading the books "My Teacher for President," "Otto Runs for President," and "Duck for President," students analyzed each character to determine who would be best suited for president.

During the unit, students learned about the election process and applied for Voter Registration Cards. With the help of parent volunteers as voting proctors on November 6, students lined up at the 'voting polls' to cast their ballot for their chosen candidate for President.

Teachers used Survey Monkey so that the students could electronically cast their votes.

After voting, students received an “I Voted” sticker and returned to class to anxiously waiting for the results of the election.

The winner by a landslide was Otto, from the book "Otto Runs for President."
