What Are the Responsibilities of the Three Levels of Government?

We’re glad you asked! 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 worksheet will help your students differentiate the different responsibilities of the federal, state and local governments of Australia. Students will match each of the twelve responsibilities listed to the level of government that executes it.  

Multiple Applications for This Levels of Australian Government Worksheet

By completing this activity, students show they understand why our government is divided into local, state, and federal levels, and identify a variety of services that each level provides. 

Use this government activity to complement your lessons as a:

  • Whole-class activity (via smartboard)
  • Student practice task
  • Homework activity
  • Summative assessment
