Product Description
In this activity, for juniors and seniors in American Government. Students are to create their own minor political party using the attached documents. This activity goes after learning about the major political parties in the United States and how they function; and how minor political parties function in the US Government system. Works well to show students how difficult it is for a minor political party to gain traction because of how narrowly focused their ideologies tend to be. The rubric is also attached within this document. This activity can be given as a homework assignment at the conclusion of the lesson or can be given as an in class activity. Either works, depending on your teaching style.

Political Party, Political Parties, Minor Political Party, Minor Political Parties, Government, American Government, US Government, Politics, Civics, Ideologies.
