Two Truths and a Fib (or Two)

Type of Activity: Get to Know You

Props Needed: None

Set Up: Need some sitting around room. Works well with 8 to 25 for 15 to 25 minutes.

Process: If you have a large group of participants you might want to make 2 groups. This involves a little “creative” story telling that seems to work better with the older participants. But, don’t let it stop you. When your group is sitting around have someone share three (real) short stories or statements about themselves. Two of these stories or statements must be true, one is not. After the statements, go around to each participant and find out which statement they think is the fib. After everyone has made their vote the fibber can share the fib. A fun way to get to know each other a little better.

Variations: When working with younger groups we suggest that their fib could be a true story with a different ending. Go for Two Fibs and the Truth. This activity is a good way to open the topic of not telling the truth and the effects it has.
