This WebQuest will allow students to study some of the main ideas of our major political parties in America. They will then decide where they fit in and design a pamphlet highlighting the importance of their political party.

Introduction

You have just turned 18!  Finally you are an adult.  One of the responsibilities that comes with becoming an adult is voting.  So you decide to register to vote, but on the form it asks what political party you are in.  Political party?  Huh?  Of course you have heard of the Democrats and Republicans, but what do they really stand for?  You decide to do a little more investigation before declaring your political affiliation.  Its time to do some research!
