Today’s Integrated Lesson

A bill can only become a law if it is passed by a majority vote in the House of Representatives and the Senate. The bill must be agreed to in identical form by both chambers, and given Royal Assent by the Governor-General. It is then known as an Act of Parliament.

You will be using a flow chart to record the steps involved in passing a bill through the House of Representatives and Senate. Also take down some brief notes associated with each of the steps.

You’ll be provided with a Pass the Bill flow chart. Use the Parliamentary Education Office online interactive, Law making: Pass the Bill.

The headings for the steps in passing a bill used in the online interactive are recorded in this Sample Flow Chart.

As you write, fill in meanings for these terms:

Minister, Prime minister, Cabinet, Leader of The Opposition, Government, House of Reps, Senate, Speaker, Clerk, Governor General, readings, Bill, Act, Law
