Product Description
There's no escaping digital media these days. We want to help our kids be wiser consumers of information. We are using famous hoaxes from history to develop a healthy sense of skepticism.

"History is littered with attempts to to deceive and defraud, or simply trick and fool. Hoaxes and pranks have mislead and duped even the smartest people. Some hoaxes were very malicious, some pranks are playful. Some have been funny, others were very serious. Some fooled many, others only a few. What can we learn about these famous hoaxes and known pranks and how can we be wise enough to avoid falling victim to misinformation and lies while enjoying fun tricks and hijinks?"

Use this guide to create lesson plans, educational modules or individual activities, such as discussions, assignments, and even games. It includes descriptions for fun exercises and tasks, as well as recommendations for other resources, such as documentaries and books.
