Our thanks to Helen Blachford, Zoe, Baker and Ryan Mason for sharing their ideas.

Lesson 1: General Election and voting an introduction to the General election and voting with teaching activities

Lesson 2: Register to Vote a lesson to help pupils understand how to register to vote including links to videos from Bite the Ballot

Lesson 3: Manifestos a lesson introducing activities to engage pupils with key manifesto promises from political parties with thanks to The Day

Lesson 4: General Election and parallel school election an overview of the General election, voting and running  a parallel election in schools

General Election form time activities. These activities have been designed for any teacher to use in form time or lessons.
