Third graders get to experience caucus simulation of their own
Third graders at Spalding Park Environmental Sciences Elementary in Sioux City got to experience their own simulation of the caucus on Monday.
According to their teachers, the students have been learning about the roles and importance of the government.
One big emphasis was placed on the right and responsibility of voting.
This caucus simulation allowed the students to put their education into action.
“I think they were excited because they’ve seen so many TV ads and hear their parents talking. And so this is a good opportunity for them to voice their opinion as well,” said Sunshine Myers, a 3rd Grade Teacher.
Myers said another part of their curriculum was learning about each of the presidential candidates for this year’s election.
