Two Truths & a Lie {Bible Edition}

Two questions for you:
1. Do you want your students digging in their Bibles and thinking critically about what they read?
2. Have you ever played the game Two Truths and a Lie? 

If you answered yes to number 1, you're in good company. Building Bible fluency and getting your students to think about Bible passages they read is a main goal of Christian teachers and parents alike. 
If you answered no to number 2, here's how the game works: a person must tell three statements: two must be true and one must be a lie. It's a common ice breaker game and a great way to get to know some people a little bit better. Because it's such a popular game, I thought I'd create a fun version of the game, with a Bible twist. In this version, the students have to read a passage and then read three statements. Two of the statements are true and one is false (the lie). It's a fun way to integrate Bible and critical thinking/close reading skills - sounds like a win-win to me!

There are 36 Bible prompts, available in three formats:
  1. Worksheets
  2. Task Cards
  3. Power Point presentation


These “Bible Two Truths and a Lie” cards can be used in a variety of ways:
  • Task cards: Set up a Bible research center and have a group of your students go through the cards, either individually, in partners, or in small groups
  • Morning work activity: This activity can be done once a week for the entire school year. Give each student the activity sheets and have them read the passage and circle the lie (incorrect statement)..
  • I have also included a Power Point presentation for you to display for your class and have them answer in a notebook, if you’d prefer to do that.
  • Early finishers: Give these pages to the students who finish another activity early
  • Homework: Assign these pages as daily/weekly Bible homework
Notes about this print-and-go Bible game:
  • A full answer key is provided for this Bible Two Truths and a Lie trivia activity.
  • The cards cover Bible verses that span the entire Bible.

Here is a Bible Two Truths and a Lie sample question:
Read Jonah 1:1-3, 15, 17
A. God called Jonah to go to Nineveh to preach.
B. Jonah jumped off the boat and swam to land.
C. God sent a great fish to swallow Jonah for three days and three nights.
Statement B is the lie because Jonah told the sailors to throw him off the boat, which they did, and then he was swallowed by a great fish.
These activities would be perfect for the Christian school classroom, homeschool classroom, and/or Sunday school classroom. I've designed it for 4th, 5th, and 6th gradersalthough younger students could do this with teacher/parent assistance.
