Product Description
Like the "ice breaker" party game, "3 Truths and a Lie" asks participants to present 3 true statements and one false statement veiled as truth. However, in this version for upper elementary and middle school ELA students, those statements must be based on the text.

Students will work with a partner in this activity. Each student will write 3 true statements from the text, and one "lie" that is presented as truth. Then students will trade papers and determine which statements are true and which one is not. For true statements, the student must provide text evidence to support it. For the lie, students must correct the statement to make it true.

This is a great way to check students' reading comprehension and critical thinking, while providing an activity that is outside-the-box.

Recommended for grades 5 - 8, although it could certainly be used for even high school students to check for comprehension.
