This game is very close to the “STAR” student that most rooms in my school have. The “STAR” student rules are as follows: to be the “STAR” student the pupil must either have the highest grade or is drawn out of a “hat” method. The person becomes the class president and they have the power to change class rules. If the rules that the “President” wants to change a rule that you don’t want changed you have the power to veto it. In my classroom I allow students to vote for the person who becomes president. We switch “presidents” after one or two weeks, which allows every student to have the opportunity to become “president.”
