Why Lesson Planet?
Middle and high schoolers explore how democracy works. After a teacher-led discussion, pupils go to websites embedded in the plan which lead them through activities that are all about the democratic process. The first website has them learn about democracy in schools and student councils. The second site teaches them about voting and representation in government. The third site serves as a closing activity in that it quizzes them on what they've learned so far. A good political science lesson!
