    We did it and it was a hit! The kids had a mock election and voted for a president. I assigned the kids into groups to act as legislators. One group of legislators was to come up with "laws" for the cafeteria, one for the classroom, and one for the playground. The president read them and either approved them or vetoed them. The kids had fun doing this and it gave them a sense of how government works.
