Two Truths and a Lie

Last week was Thanksgiving break, so there was no school. This is from the week prior.

English language development. They had an activity. 

The teacher had posted a game. They were to come up with two truths and one lie. Then they were to try to guess their classmates' lies. 

It was fun for me as I could see the whole interaction. When it was time, I called on each student to reveal their lie. 

And in each instance, at least one if not two or three of their classmates guessed the lie. 

Although, maybe not guessed.

One student's lie was that he liked orange. Another said his shoe size was 10. A third said she had a good memory. 

The students pretty much got those lies. In a class like ELD, they've been together a couple years. They probably didn't have to struggle too hard to figure out the lie. 

But the activity worked really well virtually. It would not have worked nearly as well in person. And it was the perfect assignment to be done by a sub.


  1. It sounds like it could be a fun drinking game for parties lol!

  2. Well, that's interesting and sounds fun to be honest

  3. That's a fun game for the kids to play.

  4. I played that game once. I'm not good at coming up with lies, though.

  5. Very clever of the teacher to have something that not only worked well for online learning, but something the kids were also going to be engaged with - plus good for a sub. Guess it has to happen sometimes!

  6. I've played similar games like this as ice breakers. Its fun to see what people come up with as their lies and then what's really fun to see is that what you thought was the lie was actually the truth!


  7. Nothing wrong with little fun.
    Stay Safe and Coffee is on

  8. One year, at an employee meeting, we played a game like this and I sure learned some interesting things. It was fun.
