Win the White House!

Win the White House

That’s the name of the latest game added to BrainPOP’s GameUp. In Win the White House, students get to experience what it’s like to run a presidential campaign. Players choose issues that are important to them and their constituents, then hit the campaign trail as they set out to win 270 electoral votes.They must raise money, poll voters, and make strategic targeting decisions.

We at BrainPOP love that this iCivics game offers an elementary, middle, and high school version so that students of various ages and abilities can participate. You can use the game in conjunction with our Presidential Election movie, or check out the Win the White House lesson plan to get more ideas for incorporating game play into your instruction. There are 5 other iCivics social studies games you can use to help students learn about government, presidential responsibilities, elections, laws, and other civics concepts.
