Role-play lesson plans – All [PDF 5.63Mb, 42 pages]

These lesson plans use role-play to explore how federal Parliament works and to examine its main roles:

  • Representing the people of Australia.
  • Making and changing federal laws.
  • Keeping a check on the work of the government.
  • Providing a place where government is formed.

Suitable for upper primary to secondary students, they can be conducted over one to two lessons but are designed to be flexible to suit your needs.
