PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My students BEG me to play this game all the time!

It gets them moving, works as a brain break, and also teaches them fun new facts. It can also spark heated discussions, which I think are extremely great learning opportunities for students.

This is a fun game to help reinforce the difference between fact and opinion. You may either read the cards as yourself or as "Chatty Sally." She tends to take the heat off of you. ; )

The game includes 27 lies, 27 opinions, and 27 facts. You must shuffle the cards and then read them aloud to your class. I have offered one version of playing this game, which includes the children getting up and moving around!

My recommendation is to ask students to defend their choices after they've decided whether the statement was a lie, opinion, or fact. I ask them questions like, "What key words let you know that was an opinion?" or "How do you know that's a fact? Can you cite a source?" Also, I have found that reading three or four cards as a break or transition between lessons is perfect. Enjoy!
