In weeks 4 and 6 the Year 5 students where they looked at the House of Representatives and the Senate. They participated in role plays where they had to vote and then debate their ideas to pass a bill. All students enjoyed themselves!
We were in the senate learning about government and democracy and how it works. One thing I learnt is that democracy is fair because you have to vote.
I really liked the fact that we all got to all participate in a role for a role play together and one thing I learnt was there are three stages a bill has to pass to become a law.
