2 Truths and 1 Lie
Once you have set up Google Classroom, you will create the 2 Truths and 1 Lie game in Google Slides. I started with the title, "How well do you think you know Ms. ___?" and put my name where the question mark is. The students loved this and were immediately hooked. Then I displayed my 2 Truths and 1 Lie slide that looked like this.
The students then talked with their group about which fact they thought was the lie, we voted on it, and then I revealed the 2 facts that were true and the one that was made up. Then, the next part of the activity is completely collaborative and interactive and serves many purposes.Google Slides is like Powerpoint in that you can add as many blank slides as you need. I suggest assigning the number of blank slides as you have students in your room. At the beginning of each year I assigned my class a number 1-22 for example to help keep up with our technology and class assignments. The numbers were in alphabetical order and this activity also helps teach them their number. Students will open the Google Slide game from their Google Classroom account. Give each student their number and tell them to click on their number slide. Then each student will create their own 2 Truths and 1 Lie slide. Then you can display 4-5 slides each morning and have the students guess the lie of each student in your class. This was an amazing get to know you game!

Enjoy! I know the summer is the time everyone is preparing with new ideas for the upcoming school year!
