Product Description
Having trouble with lying in the classroom or on the playground?

Social-emotional lessons, inferences, theme, characterization, STEM, fractions and geometry … all here!

Try this engaging social-emotional whole-class enrichment lesson. It’s not just about lying. The lessons are filled with standards including math and literature standards for 2nd and 3rd grades as well as a little STEM construction project.

All you will need to get started is this lesson are common school materials and the picture book, Eli’s Lie-O-Meter by Sandra Leving.

This school year we’re working on filling up the portable with whole-class enrichment lessons. These lessons are designed to be used by a gifted resource teacher in a “push-in” model or for classroom teachers who want to reach all levels of ability in an engaging way.

Each lesson opens with a whole class lesson in which students respond naturally within their ability.

Further enrichment opportunities are differentiated for higher abilities and/or for students who have a passion for the topic. This lesson includes an extension for highly creative or gifted learners.

Taught in Sessions:
Critical Thinking Questions about the Story
Identification of the Story’s Theme
Building the Lie-O-Meter in a mini STEM Project including Geometery Applications
Using the Lie-O-Meter to Detect Truth and Lies
Using the Lie-O-Meter for Challenging Applications with Fractions
Creative Extension Activity

Our discussion about lying was absolutely one of the best discussions I’ve had with a group of kids. We ended up talking about so much more than lies.
We talked about
• Kindness
• Friendship
• Fairness
• Consequences of our Actions
• Why people believe lies.
• Whether there are really monsters.
• Evidence
• Whether more than one opinion can be right.
• Why people lie.
• Why people are sometimes mean.
• How lies can hurt others.
• How it feels to be lied to.
…and much more.

Time: About 2-3 hours – easily broken into sessions. 1 hour creative or gifted extension.
Level: Best for 2nd and 3rd Grades
Materials: Common school materials and the book, Eli’s Lie-O-Meter.
