Year 6: Civics And Citizenship is the final book in the Civics And Citizenship series. This book has been designed to help teachers of Year 6 students meet the requirements of the new Australian National Curriculum. This user-friendly resource transforms an ostensibly complex topic into one that is easy to understand.
The activities in this book are designed to help students examine the state/territory and federal parliaments and the court system in more detail. Students are asked to investigate the passage of a bill, and consider the rights and responsibilities of being an Australian citizen and a global citizen. Group work, class discussions, the completion of charts, sketches and diagrams, together with the analysis of data are some of the skills required to complete the worksheets.
To make life easy for the teacher, answers are provided at the back of Year 6: Civics and Citizenship and each page references the content descriptions being assessed.
