Term 2 - Working Together

Following on from our first term studies into the historical foundations of Australia as a nation, how do we all ensure we all get along. This unit is all about the ideals of a democracy, government, rules and laws. We study how that works and its importance to community life. Also we explore ethics and ethical decision making.

Focus ideas

How are decisions made democratically?

  • How can local government contribute to community life?

  • Why do we make rules and laws and why are they important?

  • Identify how I belong in the local community, what groups am I a part of? .
