Students at a New Hampshire high school have been learning about the U.S. presidential election by running simulated campaigns and playing the roles of the candidates and their key campaign staff.
The class at Sanborn Regional High School is a mix of sophomores, juniors and seniors, some of whom will be voting in this election. They're having a mock presidential rally on Thursday in which students playing the roles of candidates and vice presidential candidates will give speeches in front of the whole school. Coordinators have set up an electoral college and will calculate the votes afterward.
Students attended local and presidential campaign rallies, listen to speakers, and have class discussions after debates and big news events.
