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:
- Parliament and government are not the same thing, they are different in many ways.
- A democracy is where heaps of people can choose what they want to do. A dictatorship is where it's one persons choice to decide and no one gets to decide.
- The speaker oversees everyone in parliament he can send people out of the room if he needs (wants) too.
Here is the link to my compare and contrast map explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship.
