What a great way for students to develop critical thinking skills and evaluation abilities!
Fact or fiction is an engaging activity that provides students the chance to think critically. It is a variation on the concept of finding errors in a problem.
There are five statements that are given in a cluster. Some of the clusters have a diagram that goes along with them. At least three of the statements are factual, and as many as two of the statements may be fiction. The student's task is to decide which label should be applied to each statement. If a statement is fictional, give the reason and/or how it could be corrected.
3 clusters (2 have a diagram and 1 does not) are included along with an answer key. The first page is a student copy. Page 2 has the key typed at the bottom. Page 3 has the key included as a QR code.
The clusters could be used with individual students, small groups, or as a direct instruction teaching resource. The pages could be cut into sections to help with this.
Content includes midsegments, triangle congruence, contrapositive, special segment concepts, and perpendicular bisectors along with a few other minor topics.
