60 FREE Politics Worksheets

FREE Politics Worksheets

You have found the politics section of Busy Teacher where you will find 60 related worksheets. There are a number of ways you can include this topic in your classes and the different worksheets available reflect that. This is one such worksheet. It has a number of activities that can help intermediate students learn about elections. The topics of the sample elections are a little basic so you might want to alter them a bit for classes with high school students or adults. There are other worksheets in this section that can help you address different aspects of politics.
This is another topic that is not suitable for everyone and will certainly ruffle some feathers if you plan to discuss a specific historical or current event. To avoid controversy in your classroom consider conducting an activity like the example above. A good time to look at the passive voice is when you are reading political articles because it is often used in them. Rather than place the blame squarely where it belongs by using the active voice, things are phrased differently to deflect the blow. “The President did this.” is totally different from “This was done.” where no one is accused of performing the action. Whether or not you decide to include this topic in your course, the worksheets are here and free for you to use at any time.
