Even grown-ups are having a tough time staying on top of this year’s historic Presidential election. So we won’t tell anyone if some of the parents sit down with their kids to get a refresher on electoral politics with the wonderful Election Collection from Schoolhouse Rock.
Fresh, clever and remarkably informative, the irresistible jingles and lively animation cover the Declaration of Independence and American Revolution, the separation of powers, women’s sufferage, and the unforgettable “Just a Bill.” Kids will learn about the electoral college, the tax system, and even some economics. This special edition has stickers to help track the voting results and a new to DVD “Presidential Minute” — with two surprise endings.
I have one DVD to give away to the first one to send me an email at email@example.com with “Schoolhouse Rock” in the subject line. Good luck!
