Gummy Bear Government is a fun little activity to hold in the classroom. By using different coloured gummy bears (and prior knowledge in previous lessons), students can represent the different forms of government found across the world. This allows students to have a clearer understanding of how democracy works globally and how global democracies compare to Australia's (Reynolds, 2014). Through this, students can appreciate Australian democracy and their involvement in their own communities.
