About This Resource

In this activity, students are asked to reflect upon their own experience with dividing tasks. The students watch two short videos to learn about how government responsibilities are divided and about the impact these divisions have on elections in Canada. Students then deepen their understanding by completing activities at different learning stations, to explore the three levels of government and the different aspects that occur with elections on each level. Finally, students consolidate their understanding through both class discussion and personal reflection; and, are encouraged to explore how they can actively engage in the electoral process.
Which Election? Understanding federal, provincial/territorial, and municipal/local elections
