Product Description
This is a 33 slide power-point file about the political spectrum designed for a government class. It is a great follow up lesson after students learn about the different political parties.

The lesson typically takes 30 minutes with group-work followed by a discussion. It leads to an interesting discussion about what is moderate and why political candidates tend to be flippers.

Directions: There is a student handout provided that I give them to copy down notes after the activity. I print each slide of the power-point and tape the spectrum (left-right liberal to conservative) to the board. I print each of the example slides with about 5 examples per group. Working in groups of four students need to match the examples to the correct end of the political spectrum.
