All of the Stage 3 students (and the Stage 2 students in Jade!) took part in a mock Federation Convention in the Library today. As delegates we had to make sure that we represented the interests and views of the people who had sent us. We had the very important job of deciding on the location of the new federal parliament – two groups decided to situate the new parliament in a separate territory in NSW called Canberra, while the other group were still deciding where to locate.
Everyone is wearing either a moustache or hat to show that women were not included in this process, and we are all looking serious as we have a huge responsibility to the people of Australia.
There were lots of “OBJECTION!!!!”s and fist thumping – although this was probably because it was fun! Some of the delegates were very serious and made some wonderful contributions to developing the constitution of our new nation!
Great work Stage 3 (and Stage 2 in Jade :-))
What did YOU think of our convention? What the best parts for you? Leave a comment below!
There has been a buzz around the digital citizenship websites that I shared with you last week! I am so glad that you are enjoying exploring these sites and learning how to be positive digital citizens.
Everything you are learning by playing these games will be useful when you are working on your plans.
Just so you have some more ideas and sites to try – here are two more interesting sites for your educational enjoyment 🙂
Stage 3 students are exploring what it means to be positive digital citizens.
We have linked into our school “Shine Guide” to help us see that being a positive citizen on-line is not so different to being a positive citizen off-line!
We are still finding out about all of the different ways that we can be positive and safe on-line; and later we will be making a plan or poster or presentation about what we can do to make sure that we are positive digital citizens.
