Instant Polling on Cell Phones
This would be a good way to explain the difference between scientific and non-scientific polling. It also allows the kids to do what they most want to do in class - get on their cell phones! Set up a free account and then you can have your students send in their votes. Our new blogger Jason told me about this site and he had his kids text 5 people to do the poll and, not surprisingly the people responded almost instantly so his poll was much bigger thant he class he was working with at the time.

Great Site! You should post a link to "Freshmen Year" on CNN. It profiles two freshmen Congressmen. It is a great resource to use when teaching the legislative branch.
