Democracy Street digital resource

Resources quick links

Description

Democracy Street is a digital art project that can be used in the classroom to get your students thinking about connections between Parliament and their local area.

This newly developed website lets you discover and explore streets that have a connection to democracy, for example those that are named after or share the same name as a parliamentarian or those that highlight key events in our democratic history.

Use the Democracy Street website alongside the downloadable resources with your key stage 2 and key stage 3 students.
