Tip: Two Truths and a Lie with Topic Twist
Make a spinner or buy one that lists topics you've been studying (e.g. colors, numbers, famous people, greetings, anatomy, water cycle, etc.) Spin the spinner and have small groups of students make 3 sentences (2 that are true and 1 that is a lie) for the topic spun. Groups read or display on whiteboards their sentences and the class guesses which sentence is a lie. Repeat.
Variations & Extensions
Small groups trade papers and circle the lie; give 3 points to groups who guess the lie and 1 point for groups who identify a truth correctly; winning group picks the next topic or can pass for a turn.
