PebbleGo Vote: The Perfect Place For Students To Have A Voice In The Presidential Election!

October 5, 2020

Preparing election activities in your school? Voting is one of our most fundamental American rights and a presidential election year is a great opportunity to connect curriculum and current events. 

Capstone and its popular K-3 database PebbleGo and 3-5 database PebbleGo Next are making it easy to make sure even your youngest students are included in the excitement.  They’ve launched a free program called PebbleGo Vote.

As the site states, "Your K-5 students love learning all they can about our country's leaders and the election process.  PebbleGo Vote allows students across the country to have a voice in the U.S. Presidential election, see that voting is important, and get a great civics lesson at the same time." 

PebbleGo Vote - Voting Screen

PebbleGo Vote is a fun and educational place for students to cast their ballot for Joe Biden or Donald Trump—voting opened on October 1. 

From October 1 to November 15, students and teachers have free access to all election-related articles on PebbleGo and PebbleGo Next, including biographies of candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden. 

PebbleGo Vote - Nationwide or School Selection

Schools and students can vote in either the National Student Voice, which doesn't require them to have a school code or link, or in the Educator School Selection, which allows you to share a school-specific link to share with students and see your school's results.

Capstone has also created a great site full of free resources including several lesson plans and activities that will fit into your K-5 curriculum.
