This is a great icebreaker for the beginning of the year OR you can use it as a community building activity through out the year.
Students will (secretly) write down two truths and a lie about themselves. (I always model this first so they get the idea). I would then have us complete about five each day during our community building time. I have them read the 3 statements and then the rest of the class has three chances to guess which one is the lie.
*(You just need to cut the paper, as the page has 3 forms on it).
This is such a fantastic and fun way to build community!
I used to just do this activity in the beginning of the year, but my students loved it so much that we now do it several times a year.
