Democracy Drop Down Day

Democracy Drop Down Day

Drop Down Day / Off Timetable Day Pack - A set of 6 lessons to cover a Drop Down Day (6 hours) all about democracy, elections and voting. The Drop Down Day was put together for Year 9 originally, but all the resources are editable and well-differentiated so it could be used with any year group KS4 / KS3 with a tweak or so. The overall theme for the series of KS3 Drop Down Days was ‘British Values’, so this is just one in a series of six which ran throughout the year. The day works especially well if you can align it with voting for the student council or prefects. At the end of the sessions, after carefully studying the democratic process, the students could come down to the hall to cast their vote. There is much focus on British Values throughout the lessons as this was planned to ensure thorough coverage of Citizenship and SMSC. All these individual lessons have been rated very highly by Tes users and are tried and tested in my own department. You can find many more inexpensive and free PSHE, Citizenship and RE resources at my shop: <a href=“https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/EC_Resources”><br /> Leave me a review and pick any other resource for free :)</a><br />
