The Scottish Parliament Challenge

The Scottish Parliament is pleased to be working with the Modern Studies Association to produce this activity for use in BGE Modern Studies classes.

The resource centres around group work, with peer knowledge sharing at the heart of the learning. 

Teachers can use the quiz as an assessment or as a fun round up to the piece of work.
