Product Description
Your students are sure to have a blast this St. Patrick's Day with this fun and educational twist on the game, TWO TRUTHS & A LIE! This activity involves critical thinking skills, reading short passages for information, and teamwork. Your students will learn about St. Patrick, the rich history surrounding this holiday, and traditions through this fun game!

How to Play
To play, your students will break into teams. Before reading a series of statements, each team will wager how many points they are willing to risk. Each team must try and determine which of the three statements is a LIE. To reveal the answer, students must READ a short passage and pull out the information from the text to determine if they made the right choice. The team with the most points wins! (Answers are included in the game).

Length of the Game
This game includes 15 series of statements, and 8 short reading passages. This game can be easily played over the course of one or two class periods.

Easy Set Up:
This game requires PowerPoint. Everything in the game is prepped for you! Just print the game sheets for tracking wagers and guesses, and the reading passage handouts. This game can also be played with virtually NO PREP, as all the reading passages are also included within the game. To play, simply read the passages aloud rather than provide student handouts. All the answers are also included within the game!

Your students will learn:
- Biographical information about St. Patrick
- Myths surrounding St. Patrick
- Origins of St. Patrick's Day
- History surrounding St. Patrick's Day
- Strength and political influence of Irish Americans
- Traditions (ex.cabbage & Irish bacon)
- Symbols (ex. leprechauns)

Discover the Truth Reading Passages
Reading passages are half-sheet size, and are perfect for attaching to a notebook for future reference. The passages have been analyzed for readability, and have been placed at the 7th grade level. This text would also work well with above/below grade level students.

Game Tracking Sheets
You may have as little as two teams, or as many as five teams. Students can track their own wagers and guesses, however I recommend the teacher also keeping track for accountability. Choice cards are included (A, B, C) for teams to hold up and announce their guess.

The same information provided in this game can also be purchased in the article format, which also includes comprehension questions. Click here to see St. Patrick's Day Close Reading: History & Traditions
