Grade 6 HASS – Australian Civics and Citizenship
Understanding the Australian Constitution and Separation of Powers Flip Book
I have designed this activity to assist you in your year 6 classroom while studying the Constitution as part of your Civics and Citizenship unit. This easy to use, fun and engaging flip book will help students to understand the following concepts:
★ The Australian Constitution – The birth certificate of a new nation
★ The Separation of Powers
★ The roles and responsibilities of The Parliament
★ The roles and responsibilities of The Executive
★ The roles and responsibilities of The Judiciary
★ Changing the Constitution
This resources is aligned with the Australian Curriculum content descriptor to complement your teaching of Federation and the key figures, events and ideas that led to Australia’s Federation and constitution (ACHASSK134) and the key intuitions of Australia’s democratic system of government and how it is based on the Westminster system (ACHASSK143).
This handy video shows how to assemble the Australian Constitution Flip Book and is an ideal tool to show your students.
