Kindergartners Make Election Day-Themed Mannequin Challenge Video

The children hold impressively still in the mannequin challenge video

Kindergartners at a New Jersey school celebrated Election Day by doing their own patriotic-themed version of the popular viral movement called the "mannequin challenge." 

The kindergarten class at Apple Montessori in Towaco, New Jersey, has been hard at work learning about the presidents, Election Day and the importance of voting leading up to Election Day on Nov. 8, a spokeswoman for the school says.

In addition to writing reports and creating mini American monuments like the George Washington Bridge and Mount Rushmore, the students also made their own video of the mannequin challenge.

In the video, the kids hold completely still as they stage different aspects of the voting process.

Parents are just beginning to react to the video and are impressed by how hard the kids worked together, according to the school spokeswoman, Nataliya Yakushev. 

The kindergartners also held their own election on whether they should have a Crazy Hair Day or Pajama Day.  Both students and parents cast their ballots and Pajama Day won by a landslide, said Yakushev.

The kids will celebrate their independence from regular school clothes by participating in Pajama Day on Nov. 23.
