You might well have tried the ’5 things about me’ activity, where you list a series of facts and the students have to guess which are true and which are false. Fellow English teacher in Turkey Dave Dodgson has this to say about this activity:
It’s not just a ‘getting to know you activity’ though – it’s also a great way for students who have been in the same class for a long time to find out things they didn’t already know about each other and I’m also planning to bring it up with my 5th grade groups, even though they have been together in the same class since 1st grade and I was their teacher last year.
Dave has now set this up as a blog challenge, one to which many have already responded. Here’s my list. Can you guess which are true?
