In this Year 5 unit, students explore the values and features of Australia’s democracy and the roles of citizens and elected representatives, addressing aspects of the HASS Australian Curriculum. This unit includes a mock election process and a mock court case which have been simplified in some areas to allow year 5s to enact the process.
✩ It is a 9-lesson unit (designed to be taught over a term) that contains all lesson resources including worksheets and posters*.
✩ This HASS unit also contains an editable PowerPoint presentation that can be displayed during each lesson. It includes the learning intentions/success criteria, key discussion points, worksheets and display resources. This makes teaching every lesson even easier if your classroom has a T.V or Smartboard.
✩ The editable planner includes relevant Australian Curriculum links.
✩ The lessons are kept simple and succinct, five to six steps each, to help you save time. The clear instructions highlight the key points, allowing you to focus on the students and make the most of the learning opportunities.
✩ Mrs Amy123 is known for its fun and engaging lessons that involve a wide range of cooperative learning strategies. This means that some lessons will not feature worksheets, though many will.
✩ This unit also includes a grading guide that shows what each grade (A-E) would look like based on two activities from the unit. This document is also linked to the Achievement Standard for Year 5 HASS.
