Activities on the Issues


Research All About It

What issues are important to you?  Which issues are important to you and our country?

The Economy?  Energy?  The Environment? Health Care? Taxes? Iraq? Afghanistan? Security?


Read and take notes about what is important to you.  Which candidate supports what YOU do? Choose your candidate based on the issues important to you. Explain why.  Create your products to explain your ideas and your candidate's ideas so others will understand.  Will you convince them?
