Activity Overview

Once students are familiar with the basics of each political party, it can be helpful for them to do a deeper dive into one specific party. In a spider map, students will outline more specific core values for a particular political party. Teachers can assign these to students or have students pick.

During an election year, students should be encouraged to complete this project while researching the party's candidate and their specific stances. For slightly more advanced students, or an additional challenge, students might look up policies and laws that their assigned party has supported and see how it aligns with the party's core beliefs.
