NZ Identity- Parliament


This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:

  • John Key sits on the fourth seat to the right of the speaker.
  • Gerry Brownlee sits on the fifth seat to the right of the speaker.
  • New Zealand is a democracy meaning that everybody gets a say whereas some countries are a dictatorship where there is only one leader who makes all the decisions.

Here is the link to my compare and contrast map explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship- Democracy Vs Dictatorship
