The Mock Legislature is a simulation activity for grade 6 students and an opportunity to experience what it's like to be part of the parliamentary process. This challenging activity is structured so that every student can participate in the debate. Using replicas of the apparel and the symbolic items actually used in the Legislature, students are guided through the stages of the passage of a bill.
In order for their classes to benefit the most from the experience, teachers are encouraged to prepare their students for the simulation prior to the visit. The online script can be downloaded for class use. Classes may come prepared with their own topic for debate, or use the suggestions in the teacher manual.
Secondary students will also enjoy and benefit from a mock legislature experience. Teachers are encouraged to make use of the mock legislature classroom as a place for spirited debate and inquiry. It is an especially rich experience in conjunction with a guided tour of the Legislature Building and observation of proceedings in the Chamber during session.
