Politics + UK Government

Updated for 2019 General Election! A short unit of 4 hours of fully resourced lessons and a quiz. All very detailed and well differentiated, complete with starters, worksheets, clips, with challenge levels to three grades throughout.

  1. What is democracy? How does the voting system work in the UK and what are general elections?
  2. Who are Parliament? What do they actually do and how are the Houses of Parliament split up?
  3. How are laws created and passed? How does an act become a law?
  4. What are the origins of UK democracy? How did our political system come to be?
  5. What are MPs and constituents? What do they do? What are all the roles that make up the UK government?
  6. A fun political quiz to see where your political sympathies lie and which party you would be likely to vote for.

Suitable for KS3/4 but could be adapted.

I use all of these myself as a Head of Citizenship and I really hope you find them excellent value.
