Voting Rules! Teacher Lesson Plans
We are updating our materials because of new legislation. A new law was passed since the creation of Voting Rules! that enabled Elections Ontario to create the Ontario Register of Future Voters, a register for 16- and 17-year-olds who wish to pre-register to vote. In the meantime, please use the Addendum to continue using the current Grade 10 edition of Voting Rules!
Voting Rules! is the civics education program that Elections Ontario and Elections Canada developed for Grade 5 and 10 teachers in Ontario. The program features lesson plans, activities, and information on democracy, elections and voting in Ontario and Canada.
The Voting Rules! teacher toolkits are available at no cost in English and French, and in alternate format.
There are two teacher toolkits one for Grade 5 and one for Grade 10. Teachers can pick from a number of lesson plans and choose learning tasks to suit the needs of their classes and students. Each program finishes with the class administering and delivering a mock election.
