Summer Learning Journey - Day 12 - Activity One - If I Were Prime Minister...

Hi, reader, let’s just get into this, you know what this post is going to be about from the Summer Learning Journey. Let’s go.

It’s Day 12, and the theme today is...powerful people…

Here in New Zealand, the prime minister of the country is the Honourable Mr. John Key. Imagine that you are Mr. Key and you have the power to create laws (rules) that everyone in New Zealand would have to follow. If Curious Kiwi were the prime minister he would make a rule that everyone must eat lollies for breakfast. What three (3) rules would you make up if you were the prime minister? On your blog tell us what your three rules would be.

This is really hard...

If I were the prime minister, my three laws would be:
  1. Keep it Clean - Don’t dump rubbish illegally - this means no rubbish in lakes, rivers, stores, public buildings. Fine is up to $500 or an arrest if at a store (like the Salvation Army).
  2. Foreign tourists who come from countries that drive on the right must take a tourist-type driving test before they can drive on New Zealand roads. If they don’t pass, they can try again.
  3. If you wake up later than 11am you must have brunch.

It took me a long time to figure out those laws. It was pretty hard!

It can be pretty hard to come up with laws when there are so many possibilities! I think that you have come up with three very reasonable and, potentially, quite revolutionary laws. I particularly like the rule about keeping the earth clean. We have a real responsibility to preserve the planet for our next generation and yet there is rubbish being dumped everywhere you look. It would be great if there were stricter laws around the disposing of rubbish.

It would also be quite helpful if the driving laws were a bit more strict for tourists who, like me, are accustomed to driving on the other side of the road. It is quite hard to adjust to driving on the other side of the road and I think that it would be good to make the rules more stringent and require people to practice before they get behind the wheel.

I think that you are really onto something...
