This is a complete 50 minute 5 station lesson on United States political parties. There is a handout included that students carry to each station as well as clear station directions on what to do at each station. I give my students 9 minutes a station for each of the 5 stations. This lesson is designed in Word and Powerpoint. They will need access to computers or devices at two station. This is a print and use stations lesson! No need to modify unless you want to :) The class period goes so fast with stations!
This lesson is not biased in anyway leaning kids towards one political party or another. It simply gives them the information and lets them decide what party they closely align with.
- Station 1: What is a political party? Powerpoint Notes
- Station 2: Youtube Video clip and questions from crash-course on political parties
- Station 3: Political Party Ideology Quizzes (must have access to a device or two to share with a partner - phone, tablet, or computer)
- Station 4: How do political parties feel about certain key issues? (must have access to a device or two to share with a partner - phone, tablet, or computer)
- Station 5: What makes someone conservative and liberal reading and graphic organizer?
- Homework: Political Parties Response
⇒ I highly suggest printing the station handouts on different colored paper and put them in folders to keep them organized so every year you have them ready to go!
⇒ I give my student's 8 minutes a station with a minute passing time to complete a 45 minute class period, with a few extra minutes at the end of the lesson to discuss the main ideas from the lesson.
