Two Truths and a Lie - At their desks, ask your students to write down three sentences about their lives (or their summer vacations). Two of the sentences should be true and one should be a fib.
For example, your statements could be:
- This summer I went to Alaska
- I have 5 little brothers.
- My favorite food is brussel sprouts.
Next, have your class sit in a circle. Each person (including you, teacher!) gets a chance to share their three sentences. Then the rest of the class takes turns guessing which one is the lie. Obviously, the more realistic your lie (or mundane your truths), the harder time people will have figuring out the truth.
