Two Truths and A Lie

Mentors

 

Materials:

Index Card

Objective:

For students to get to know each other, while being comfortable knowing that what they share is totally up to them.

Instructions:

Each person in the group says aloud two truths about themselves and a lie.  The group then tries to guess which statement is the lie.  Sometimes it makes the group more comfortable if the mentor begins.  Also, allow students to elaborate on the truths if they would like to share the story behind it.

Example:

I have a three legged dog, I have almost 50 cousins, and I went sky diving last weekend. The class would then guess which one is a lie. Students can use the index cards to write down their truths and lie if they want something to speak off of.

Answer: I did not go sky diving last weekend.

Variations:

Have the group split into pairs or smaller groups.
