My main way of showing my kids how Election Day works consists of one activity: taking them with me to the polls. I answer any questions they ask, and have occasionally had a short political discussion with my 10-year-old. It's a start, right?
I may print off a word search or coloring page as well. My oldest would like some of the activities I found at About.com.
Julie had more ideas about Election Day. Find those here.
