The Premier's Kid Zone

The introduction to this Web site says, "Here's your chance to tour Ontario with Max the Moose, explore Queen's Park, play the trivia game and find out how government works." The site provides a fun and interesting way for children to learn about how the Ontario government works. Students could use this site to make a flow chart showing how a bill becomes law in Ontario.
