  • Cut out the amazing facts
  • As the learners enter the room give an amazing fact to each one.
  • Ask the learners to write an ‘f’ on their sheet is they think the statement is false and a ‘t’ if they think the statement is true.
  • Learners then read their statements to the other members of the class and write down on their statement an ‘f’ or a ‘t’ depending on whether their colleagues think the statement is true or false.
  • The student will have a list of ‘f’s and ‘t’s depending on the response from the colleagues.
  • Ask learners in corresponding order to read out their statements and report how many learners think the statements are true or false. Write these results on the board.
  • Read out answers and elicit the answers to the false statements.
