Parliament Week (19-25 November)

As the US election approaches, it is a great time to get pupils interested in politics at home.

TES partner Parliament Education Service shares online activities that help pupils to understand the UK Parliament, including a quiz about the House of Lords and the House of Commons, the Queen's role and the differences between Parliament and government.

Tune in to EuroparlTV to hear pupils from seven European university radio stations debate the issue of unemployment.

To encourage pupils to have their say, try Parliament Education Service's top tips for running a school council.

For these resources and more, try the TES Parliament Week collection at bit.lytesParliament.
