Explore the roles and responsibilities of Australia's three levels of government with this hands-on learning task.
What Are the Three Levels of Government in Australia?
Why, local, state and federal government, of course!
Each level of government in Australia has a specific role and provides specific services to members of the Australian public. From printing money to waste disposal, certain public services are handled at specific levels of government. Ideally, this separation ensures communities get what they need to run efficiently, effectively and with flexibility!
This hands-on activity has been designed with your students in mind! It enables them to demonstrate their knowledge of the roles of local, state and federal governments in Australia in the form of a triarama.
Not sure what a triarama is, or how to make one? Never fear! Our step-by-step instructions with matching images will have your students creating their triaramas in no time!
How to Make an Australian Government Triarama
