Kidsview—Parliament in Focus is a sub-website of the Parliamentary Education Office website www.peo.gov.au. Kidsview challenges kids to explore parliamentary principles in a stimulating and educational environment. Content is arranged across five main themes: Representation, Law-making, Democracy, Parliament House and Parliamentary Treasures.
The Kidsview team believes that learning about parliament should be fun. Never boring! So, the site speaks to kids through a range of exciting learning objects and games which are interactive and educational; demanding but fun; multi-layered yet focused.
To assist teachers and parents in facilitating kids' on-line learning we have provided complementary teaching material. Created for upper primary students, Kidsview content will assist teachers and students in achieving SOSE/HSIE outcomes.
Kidsview was created in Macromedia
Flash because of its capacity for
designing and building rich multi-media in
the form of interactive games and visually
stimulating animations. You are currently viewing
the non Flash version of Kidsview.
You cannot interact with the non Flash version
of Kidsview in the same way as you
can in the Flash version. We have created
this special version of Kidsview because
we don't want anyone to miss out on this great
material. Download the latest version
of the Flash
plug-in to view the interactive version
of Kidsview. If you already have the
Flash plug-in, go to the Flash
version of Kidsview. The PEO
is committed to improving the accessibility
of our website, and we would like you to contact
you have any issues accessing Kidsview.
