Target Vocabulary: Any sentence.
Materials: No, materials needed.
This game is better for older or intermediate students. Have students write down two sentences about themselves that are true and two that are false. Make sure they keep it a secret from other students. For example, “I like tomatoes.”, “I play soccer.”, “My mother’s name is Tomoko.”, “I have a dog.” etc.
Have them cut out the four sentences with scissors and mix up the order. Then have each student come up and read their four sentences.
The other students put a thumbs up if they think it is true or a thumbs down if they think it is false. The students who guessed correctly are awarded a chip or point. The student with the most chips/points at the end is the winner.
Note 1: A variation of this game that is to have only one false and three true sentences and have the other students guess which is false. This is a great warm up activity as well. The teacher can write the four sentences on the board before the students arrive.
