Brexit-vision Song Contest: Who should you vote for?

Brexit-vision Song Contest: Who should you vote for?

This resources is a fun, interactive and thought-provoking take on Brexit. The lesson asks pupils to think of Brexit as if it was the Eurovision song contest - introducing them to the key political figures, which institutions they represent and what their biases may be - and to imagine the contestants performing their Brexit-priorities through the form of a song contest. It introduces students to who is behind Brexit, what the negotiating positions are and what the outcomes might be - all in an engaging and experience-led learning journey. The activities promote group and individual tasks, and the lesson ends in a platform through which students share their own political priorities through the Brexit process.
