Grade 5 Parliament Process Incursion

Yesterday the Grade 5 students participated in a Parliament Process Incursion by Linked Incursions. This fit beautifully with our current Inquiry unit focused on Australia’s democratic process, which involves looking at the roles of different levels of government and how a law is made.

Students participated in interactive role plays to help them understand our preferential voting system, absolute majorities and how laws are passed through the House of Representatives, before moving to the Senate.

Their speaking and listening skills were put to the test as different students took on different roles in Parliament, such as Speaker and Prime Minister.
