This political parties and issues web-search lesson is a full 55 minute class period to complete. I’ve also done it in 42 minutes and had them write the activity # 3 response for homework.
For this lesson students will research the most important issues that face our nation, research the solutions that various political parties provide for these issues, decide which political party best matches their personal philosophies, and ultimately decide which political party they will register with.
Note: They need access to a device with internet for this lesson.
Activity #1: Take three online political party quizzes
Activity #2 Go to a website and pick four issues they feel strongly about and explain why these issues are important.
Activity # 3: Write a 1-2 paragraph description of which political party they closely associate with (in class or for homework).
