Product Description
How Democratic Are We? Activity (Civics)

This is a fun and interactive activity for your secondary students. First, students will work with a partner to analyze political cartoons related to democracy. Then the class will analyze six scenarios in the United States to determine if it is an example of democracy or not. For example, “In the 2000 election Bush won the Electoral College vote but Al Gore won the popular vote.”My students have a great time debating these scenarios. For a wrap-up activity, students work with a partner to analyze eight quotes about democracy. They will be asked to interpret the quote and to explain what they think of the quote. This is a great activity for higher-level thinking skills.

This purchase includes the following:
24-slide power point presentation
2-page WORKSHEET: Democracy in Quotes
