Teaching activity

Getting started with US politics - What's My Party?

Ruth Tarrant

4th September 2016

This week I'll be posting a mini-series of blog posts that focus on lesson ideas and resources you can use with returning Year 13s who are following the US politics options for their A2. This first activity uses our popular Swipe It PowerPoint game as a way of supporting students in their learning with respect to different presidencies and the two main political parties in the US.

You can download the Tablet Swipe US Presidential Parties PowerPoint game by clicking here. Remember to start the game in slideshow mode, and always start from the first slide.
