This unit of work was resources from forteachersforstudents πŸ”—https://www.forteachersforstudents.com.au/site/themed-curriculum/democracy-australia/ The unit of work aims to introduce students to the idea of democracy and how it is represented in Australia. They will research various types of rule and participate in activities that allow them to experience these as decision-makers and citizens. They will consider Australia’s three-tier system of government, identify the roles and responsibilities of federal, state and local governments and be introduced to how members are elected to these institutions. Finally, students will consider some symbols of democracy and how they shape our national identity.
