Year 5: Civics And Citizenship is part of a four book series written by the same author. This book has been designed to help teachers of Year 5 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 help students to understand fundamental democratic values and see how these underpin the Australian electoral system. The right to vote, the secret ballot, preferential voting and proportional representation are all explained in a way which will maintain students’ interest. Specific tasks to help students recognise the significance of global citizenship are also included.
To make life easy for the teacher, answers are provided at the back of Year 5: Civics and Citizenship and each page references the content descriptions being assessed.
