Post-Election Ideas for your Class

We have prepared two activities that can be used in the weeks after the federal election. They are designed to help your students reflect on the importance of elections in our democracy and how elections connect to Parliament. The two activities can be used independently or in sequence. You may also want to simply have a discussion by looking at the Student Vote Canada 2019 results.
