Back to School TRUTH or LIE Bundle | Distance Learning | Volume 1 + Volume 2
In this back to school bundle, you receive both Volume 1 and Volume 2 of my popular historical TRUTH or LIE activities! Both activities are a hit and a guaranteed to get students engaged on your first days of school. Both activities include a traditional and a version optimized for distance learning!
Students will work individually or in collaborative pairs to put forth their best guesses as to which 5 statements are truths and which 5 are lies. After students have completed the 10 historical (and fictional) stations, the included guiding PowerPoint walks through each station and sets the record straight. Students learn about each included station to go deeper into the content.
For example Station #1 from Volume 1 states...
"In Ancient Rome, it was common to eat the deceased body of a gladiator in order to gain his will and courage." Is this a truth or a lie? Then the included PowerPoint not only provides the answer, but adds a new level of understanding for students.
This statement is a LIE, and the slide adds...
"Sheesh – good thing that didn’t happen.
But, the ancient Romans DID drink the blood of gladiators who were killed for similar reasons. Dead gladiators were often collected after fights, their blood drained, and sold as medicine or as a 'cure' for misunderstood conditions."
Enjoy this exciting and fun way to start the school year!
