1. Tell students they will be playing a game and that they have five minutes to study the handouts they have, plus an additional handout called The Skinny on Skin handout
. Hand out The Skinny on Skin handout
a. During this time, walk around and check for clarification/questions.
a. In this game, there will be two (or more) teams.
b. They will choose one designated spokesperson to say all the answers out loud.
c. The team whose turn it is will then get a True or False question that is on a piece of paper they pull from a hat (or bag, etc.). Then they hand it to you and you will read it out loud.
The team has 15 seconds to decide if it is “True” or “False.” The spokesperson must say, “True” or “False.”
d. If they are correct, the team gets 3 points.
i. If it is “False,” they get the chance to earn 1 extra point by correcting the false
statement, thereby making it true.
ii. If the team is wrong in the correction of the false question, the other team gets a chance to answer (they must answer right away) to earn 1 point.
iii. Some true statements may have a bonus question for one point. If the team can’t answer it, the other team does not get a try (of course, these rules can be changed according to your preference and what best suits the class.)
e. There is no skipping turns, and a team does not get to go twice in a row if they were the team that picked the paper. It should always go Team A picks, Team B picks, Team A picks….etc.
i. This will prevent students from getting upset about whose turn it is.
f. Use questions from Skin True or False Question Slips
