Two Truths and a Lie

Each participant stands in front of the class and says two truths about themselves and one lie, then the class votes on which one is the lie.

Benefits:

  • Encourages listening skills
  • Students learn more about their classmates

Limitations:

  • If scores are kept, keep in mind that the competition might not be suitable for some groups.
  • If all students within a larger group take a turn, the activity will get lengthy

Applications:

  • Can be used as an icebreaker when students still do not know each other well

Adaptations:

  • Teacher can choose how long the activity will go on for
  • Students can keep score of how many times they are correct
