The following set of civics and citizenship lesson plans have been designed around the David Walliams novel Mr Stink.The Mr Stink story presents an opportunity to acquaint students from upper primary school with a number of key democratic concepts, including the importance of elections and the role of elected representatives in a parliamentary system.
The lesson plans are designed to be completed after students have read the story (or viewed the film) as they will need to be familiar with the characters and plot to understand and complete the activities.
Schools groups are welcome to visit the Legislative Assembly to participate in role play activities where students take on roles as the Speaker, Clerk, government members, opposition members and more.
The Assembly’s education and engagement program offers a wide range of different programs for primary and high school students that can be tailored to meet the needs of teachers and students. For more information, contact:
