Students share about themselves and learn more about each other in this get-to-know-you game.
- No supplies needed
How to Play
- Have each student think of three things about themselves—two things should be true and one should be a fib.
- Call on students one at a time to tell their three things.
- Give the rest of the students some time to think.
- Have the student say their three statements again, with students putting a thumbs up for what they think is true and a thumbs down for what they think is the fib.
- Have the student announce which one was the fib.
- Continue this providing each student the opportunity to tell their three things.

- Give students time to write down their two truths and a fib so that they don’t forget them.
- Have students keep score of how many fibs they guess correctly and announce the winner at the end.
- If it is a large group with lots of leaders, have the leaders come to the front and announce two truths and a fib and have groups of students guess the fib.
