A poster to display in the classroom that explains the Parliament of Australia.
How Does the Australian Parliament Work?
The governance of our country is a tricky concept to understand! Even adults can find all the subtleties of our three levels of Australian government confusing… no wonder our students find it all so complicated!
This infographic poster has been designed to explain how the Parliament of Australia works in child-friendly language. It outlines the three key elements of the Federal Parliament: The King (represented by the Governor-General), the Senate, and the House of Representatives. It also explains the role of the Federal Parliament in representing the people of Australia, reviewing and making laws, and holding the actions of the current government to account!
This clear visual learning tool will have your students explaining how our Federal Parliament works to the nearest adult in no time!
