Gummy Bear Government

     What do Gummy Bears and government have in common? Well Mrs. Harvey’s 8th grade AG classes took part in Gummy bear Government to find out. This week students used these delicious little bears as manipulatives to illustrate different types of societies . Students were asked to replicate countries in chaos without clear leadership , communism with a dictator and democracy with three distinct branches. The classes also identified the checks and balances of power as identified in the articles of the Constitution. Finally, students were able to consume the President, Vice President, 15 department Heads, Speaker of the House and all nine Justices of the Supreme Court!
