Leader Resource 2: Unfair Scenarios

Scenario 1 (two, plus watchdog):
Person A:
You have a really big piece of chocolate cake. It's your favorite desert and you don't want to share any.
Person B:
You don't have any cake and you would like some.
Scenario 2 (three, plus watchdog):
Person A:
You are the teacher's favorite student because you always do your work and you usually know the answers to the teacher's questions. You always raise your hand to answer questions and the teacher often picks you.
Person B:
You are a teacher. You ask a lot of questions and you especially like to call on Person A because Person A is your favorite student. You think of Person C as a troublemaker.
Person C:
The teacher thinks of you as a troublemaker. You did your homework and you are raising your hand to try to answer questions, but the teacher isn't calling on
you.

Scenario 3 (three, plus watchdog) :
Person A: You are a bit of a bully sometimes. You are at the playground with Person B.
Person B is your best friend and you love to play together. Person C is also at the playground and wants to play with you. They are new in town and you aren't sure that you really like them.
Person B:
You are at the playground with your best friend, Person A. Even though Person A can be a bully sometimes, you aren't. Person C is also at the playground and wants to play with you. Person C is new in town.
Person C:
You are new in town and you haven't made any friends yet. You are at the playground and you see Person A and Person B who are in your class in school. You would like to play with them.

Scenario 4 (two, plus watchdog):
Person A:
You are making up a game to play with Person B. You get to make all the rules and Person B has to follow them, even if they are unfair. You get to decide everything — like what game to play and what names you will use. You can always win.
Person B:
You are playing with Person A. They get to make up all the rules and you have to follow them, even if they are unfair.
