Materials: Acne Two Myths and a Truth sheet
1. Ask students if anyone has ever played the game, Two Myths and a Truth.
a. If a student has, let the student explain directions then you repeat directions for class.
b. If no students know, explain:
i. I am going to read three sentences.
ii. Students then have to guess which sentence is the truth and which are the two myths.
iii. We will designate three parts of the room for Statements 1, 2, and 3. Whichever statement you think is the truth is where you go to stand.
3. Assign the three parts of the room for Statements 1, 2, and 3.
4. Tell students to stand up. When s/he is done reading the statements, students will move to the part of the room that represents the statement they think is the truth. Repeat the statements if need be.
5. Keep a tally of how many students are at each station for each set of myths/truth and writes it down on the Acne Two Myths and a Truth sheet. Tell the students which is the correct answer, but do not provide the explanations until the game is done and all the kids are back in their seats.
6. After going through all four sets of myths/truth, reread the three statements and states how many students thought 1/2/3 was the true statement.
7. Ask students if they can remember which one was the truth.
a. If students answer incorrectly, tell them which statement is the truth.
8. Follow-up by asking why they think that is the truth or the others are myths.
a. If students are unresponsive, ask about a single statement to be more direct.
b. If students are still unresponsive, go ahead and give the explanations.
