A simple activity to increase interest in the science classroom! Students read the concepts on the handout and must decide if they believe it is true or a myth. Concepts include, "5 Second Rule", "Blind as a Bat", "Dogs mouths are cleaner than humans?". They discuss in groups and the activity could be extended to include a research project and or experiment. Turns out ALL the concepts are false!
Great activity to use on the first day or first week of school! Gets the kids talking with one another and they are really engaged. This has been a hit every year I've used it.
I just added a few myths and also added explanations of each so you can share with your students where the misconception came from.
