UK General Election Presentation / Lesson

UK General Election Presentation / Lesson

This resource can form a lesson, informing children about the importance of General Elections (like 2017) and why we have them.This Powerpoint presentation allows children to learn about what 'government' is, how it is structured, what different major parties form our current government and what their current policies are (which I have sourced as independently as possible using various news outlets and party pages, barring any U-turns!) This then goes on to allow children to discuss the policies presented to them and to think about what matters / appeals to them the most, with the aim of encouraging freedom of independent thought and debate. Due to the complex wording of some policies, this resource would be most appropriate for UKS2 and KS3, and possibly LKS2 with detailed supporting verbal explanation of key issues provided by teaching staff, such as Brexit.The class can then go on to hold a Polling Station to vote, with polling cards included in the resource pack, before votes being counted and the results being displayed on the slide in both percentage and pie chart form.

This resource contains a PPT with 25 slides with different activities with videos, questions and articles. It also contains a booklet with 11 pages for students so that they can keep a track of their learning. All the activities are corrected to save you time.
