The Martin Van Buren National Historic Site is excited to offer 'I Voted!' as part of their Ranger Time series designed for children pre-k to kindergarten.
This at-home program introduces children to election campaigns and the voting process through the fictional presidential race between Mortimer the Turtle and Foxy the Fox.
Children will also enjoy hands-on activities and short lessons that bring to life the story of Martin Van Buren as a child in Kinderhook to President of the United States.
Families may download the materials necessary for the at-home activities by following the links below.
Mortimer the Turtle and Foxy the Fox have both decided they want to be President of Lindenwald!
1. I'm fast, this means I will get things done in the blink of an eye.
2. I can do tricks.
3. I make friends with everyone I meet.
4. I promise to make sure the Park Rangers at Lindenwald get all the ice cream they want.
5. My daddy thinks I am funny.
So, vote for me!
