Don’t you just love playing the two truths and a lie game? It’s a quick and easy way to get to know our students a little better. Plus, it opens up a lot of opportunities to talk about non-verbal cues, as well as sometimes saying things that shouldn’t be taken literally.
I’m always in need of quick, grab and go materials and the two truths and a lie game is one of my favorites! I made this worksheet for the beginning of the school year for my mixed language and social groups. It worked incredibly well and was SO easy to prep (aka just print it) sooo I thought I’d share it with all of you!
To play, just write two truths and one lie in the top boxes. Then, I usually have my students fill in the first of the bottom boxes BEFORE we play and the second after.
We discuss all sorts of strategies including body language and using prior knowledge. This is a great activity to work on inferencing!
After everyone takes their turn, we discuss whose lie was the trickiest to guess. We reflect on how tricky our facts were to guess and why!
I hope it’s helpful for you!
