Election time is exciting … and preschoolers on up can participate in some of the excitement. This would be a great week for a United States election unit study, or you could just add an election book, activity, or mini unit this week to make the interest around a presidential election into a learning experience.
There aren’t a lot of Montessori-inspired election units available online. There are a number of Montessori-inspired activities you can do, though, and there are some awesome unit studies on my Pinterest board that would work very well in a Montessori-inspired unit. Following are some Montessori-inspired election activities and my Kids’ Government Activities Pinterest board.
Montessori-Inspired Election Activities
Montessori-Inspired President’s Day Activities (my roundup post)
2012 United States Presidential Election Unit Study for PreK and K-10 from American Montessori Consulting

“Mock Elections at Peabody Montessori”
Kids’ Government Activities Pinterest Board
I have a Kids’ Government Activities Pinterest Board with some amazing election activities and unit studies for a number of ages.
I’d love to hear about any election activities you’re doing at home or school!

Montessori Monday Link-Up
If you have some Montessori activity trays/lessons to share, please link up below. It’s fine to link up a post from your archives – and you may link up anytime during the week! Your post may be any Montessori-inspired activity or idea. It doesn’t need to be related to my Montessori Monday post.
Link up your exact post URL so that we can find your activity if we return to the linky at a later date (which I often do when I’m looking for activities for a roundup post). I publish the Montessori Monday post and linky at 6:00 a.m. EST each Monday and keep the linky open throughout the week.
Please place the Montessori Monday button (using the code from the right sidebar) in your post or put a link back to this post. Let’s use Montessori Monday to gain inspiration/ideas and to encourage each other! If you would leave an encouraging comment on the post linked up ahead of you (along with any other posts you’re drawn to), that would be awesome! Thanks for participating!
