You've got the Power

You've Got the Power is a new resource pack that brings Parliament to life through a series of animated films. Available for use with both primary and secondary age students, the pack introduces how Parliament works and helps students to understand:

  • The differences between Parliament and government
  • Why laws are needed and how they are made
  • How the election process works and what an election campaign involves
  • What their MP does
  • Different political systems
  • How to organise their own vote

Developed by the Parliamentary Education Unit, the pack has been written and reviewed by educational experts. Each pack contains a DVD/video and a supporting teachers' booklet with lessons plans, information, photocopiable activities and worksheets, which are all linked to the citizenship curriculum.
