Materials: Acne Two Myths and a Truth sheet
1. Facilitator asks students if anyone has ever played the game, Two Myths and a Truth.
a. If a student has, Facilitator lets student explain directions then Facilitator repeats/clarifies directions for class.
b. If no students know, Facilitator explains:
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. Facilitator assigns the three parts of the room for Statements 1, 2, and 3.
4. Facilitator tells 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. Facilitator will repeat the statements if need be.
5. Facilitator keeps 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. Facilitator tells the students which is the correct answer, but does not provide the explanations until the game is done and all the kids are back in their seats.
6. Once Facilitator has gone through all four sets of myths/truth, s/he rereads the three statements and states how many students thought 1/2/3 was the true statement.
7. Facilitator asks students if they can remember which one was the truth.
a. If students answer incorrectly, Facilitator tells them which statement is the truth.
8. Facilitator follows-up by asking why they think that is the truth or the others are myths.
a. If students are unresponsive, Facilitator can ask about a single statement to be more direct.
b. If students are still unresponsive, Facilitator can go ahead and give the explanations.
