Elementary School (K-5)
- Book: Presidential Elections and Other Cool Facts by Syl Sobel, J.D.
Attorney volunteers speaking to a K-5 classroom will receive a copy of the Presidential Elections and Other Cool Facts book by Syl Sobel, J.D. in the mail. This book covers the following topics: who will lead the country; rules for electing the president; electoral college; presidential campaigns; and what if something happens to the president. Volunteers can either read the book to the students, or pick and choose a certain topic to discuss. We encourage you to donate this book to the teacher’s classroom library at the end of your presentation. Note: We will provide you with enough books to donate to every teacher (i.e., if you’re speaking to three 4th grade classrooms at once, we will provide you with three books – one for each teacher).
This book is a gift from the ISBA, Anthem and Duke Energy.

The Office of the Indiana Secretary of State has produced a video showcasing Indiana’s candidates for U.S. senator and governor for you to use as part of your presentation. In this video, the candidates explain the importance of voting and what they hope to do if elected. We encourage you to use this video to launch a bipartisan discussion about the candidates and the election process in general.IMPORTANT TO NOTE: To play this video, you can simply navigate to this page, click on the “YouTube” icon in the bottom, right-hand corner, which will take you to YouTube where you have the ability to watch in full-screen mode. However, you may find that your school blocks YouTube. We recommend that you or the teacher click here to download this video to the laptop being used for the presentation so that you don’t have to rely on the Internet connection or permission to use YouTube at the school.
