HSIE Government projects

As part of our Stage 3 unit on Federal and State Government, students were invited to form political parties.  Using the Bloom's Taxonomy of higher order thinking, groups completed projects to show their understanding of the history of democracy in Australia.  They went on to showcase their party's platform, produced jingles, redesigned Parliament House and conducted a mock election, in which Nic was elected Prime Minister!

This work was reinforced by the Stage 3 three-day Canberra excursion, during which they visited Parliament House, the Parliamentary Education Office at Old Parliament House, the Canberra National Capital Planning Exhibition, the War Memorial and Royal Australian Mint as well as other places, such as Ques tacon and the National Museum of Australia.
