BRIEF OUTLINE: Students create three sentences using Present Perfect Verbs, one of which is false. Classmates win bets if they guess the one that is false.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • T/FBetting worksheet:You could also simply use scratch paper.
  • A bit of deviousness

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After handing out the worksheet to the students, have them them write three sentences about themselves at the bottom of it, keeping in mind that one of the three sentences should be false.
  2. After giving the students about five minutes to create their two true and one false statements, have them stand up and read their sentences to the class.
  3. The rest of the class has to say which statement they think is false and record a bet.
  4. Once all bets are in, have the student reveal which statement was false. If students guessed right, they gain the amount of their bet. If they guessed incorrectly, they have to subtract the amount of their bet.
  5. Proceed with the next student.
  6. At the end, the student with the highest amount of "money" wins.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • If you have a large class, you could ask for volunteers to read their sentences, but still allow everyone to make bets. That way, you can have the actual game part be as long or short as you need it to be.
