Australia's Three Levels of Government - Triarama Activity

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 5 pages | Years: 6

A fun activity for students to display their understanding of the roles and responsibilities of Australia's three levels of government.

Use this fun teaching resource in the classroom when learning about the roles and responsibilities of Australia’s three levels of government.

After learning about the roles and responsibilities of Australia’s federal, state and local governments, students create a triarama to show six of the major roles and responsibilities for each of the three levels of Australian government.

To create the triarama, ask the students to:

  • record six roles and responsibilities for each level of government on the blue (federal), orange (state), and local (green) circles
  • colour in the title cut-out template ‘Australia’s Three Levels of Government’
  • fold, cut and glue four sheets of square craft paper to create four ‘triaramas’
  • join the four ‘triaramas’ together with glue to create one large triarama with four open sides
  • cut and glue each of the cut-out templates onto each side of the triarama to create a title page side, federal government side, state government side and local government side
  • use a straw to create an Australian flag, insert the flag through the centre of the triarama.

To assist students with this activity in the classroom, display the following posters:
