Grade 5 - Political Parties

Today we will be learning about Canada's political parties.

First you will read an article that briefly explains Canada's political parties. Please remember that this article was written last April.

The information presented in the article posted above is now out of date, as a result you must look for a more current source of information to answer today's questions. You will use the Elections Canada website to retrieve information on Canada's main political parties.

In your Social Studies notebooks you will record the names of Canada's main political parties as well as the names of the party leaders. In your Social Studies books you will also record the total number of registered political parties in Canada.

After recording this information, use the Elections Canada website, and the links found on it, to learn about some of Canada's political parties. Remember, you will be creating your own political party so start brainstorming for what will be important to your party!

Good luck and have fun!
