Family Fun Day Activity #1

Who Is Telling the Truth

Everyone will get an index card. You will write your name on the top of the card. You will then write something about yourself that nobody in the room knows about you.

          - It can be totally random

          - It can be something present or past

          - It can be something that no one would ever guess about you

I will then gather the cards up.

     - I am going to call 3 people up

     - 1 of the 3 will be the person on the card

     - I will show all 3 people the card and give them 20 seconds to read it and think about it

      - I will then read the statement on the card to everyone else

And then all 3 people will take turns explaining how that is their card – so they will come up with a story about what it says on the card

Each person then votes on who they think the right person is

Then the correct person will step forward

 

The winner receives a prize.

I most likely will be in to see you today. I will be out for another two weeks; however, I want to catch up on what you have been doing. By now you should have decided on the games for the school Fair activity day. You should have identified what is a community and made the poster. 


IMPORTNT: Spirit week is October 29th - November 2. Please take the survey.  Fill out this form.

Prom: Please use this link to vote on prom theme.

NEW TOPIC: "Pay It Forward"
Please watch this video: CLICK HERE

You will:

my dream is

  • define serial reciprocity (paying it forward).
  • view a movie or movie clips and discuss characters and concepts related to the impact of paying it forward.
  • brainstorm and investigate social issues that they can address in their communities and world.
  • take action through service and social activism.
  • design and implement a campaign to raise awareness of a chosen issue of importance.

 

VOCABULARY:

service: to provide a community or organization with something that it needs

donate: to give or present something, especially to a charitable organization or other good cause

paying it forward: the concept of asking that a good turn be repaid by having it done to others

social activism: an intentional action to bring about social, political, economic, or environmental change. It can take a wide range of forms from writing letters to newspapers or politicians, political campaigning, economic activism such as boycotts or preferentially patronizing businesses, rallies, street marches, strikes, sit-ins and hunger strikes.

WHAT YOU WILL DO NEXT:

You will think of a slogan or motto that you can give your campaign that will engage interests and deliver the message that they are trying to convey to their peers and the community. Once the slogan is chosen,  write a simple individual pledge of service related to the chosen issue/slogan on the card the sub will give you.

Take paper from the back of the room and  make a  "banner."

Write the chosen slogan in large letters in the center of the banner, and then each student can hang their individual pledge statement to the banner.

Give everyone an index card and have them write their name on the top

Then have them write something about themselves that nobody in the room knows about them

It can be totally random

It can be something present or past

It can be something that no one would ever guess about you

For example:

or:

Then you gather the cards up.

Then you explain the game like this:

I am going to call 3 people up 

1 of the 3 will be the person on the card

I will show all 3 people the card and give them 20 seconds to read it and think about it

 I will then read the statement on the card to everyone else

And then all 3 people will take turns explaining how that is their card – so they will come up with a story about what it says on the card

Each person then votes on who they think the right person is

Then the correct person will step forward

For example:  you may call Mom, Keri, and Mike up-  and you have Keri’s card that says “I used to have an invisible friend named Reba”.  They all then tell a quick story to the crowd trying to convince everyone that it is them.  So Keri would tell the true story, and Mike and Mom would make up some convincing story using the facts on the card but totally different than Keri.  …(it is crazy what people can come up with!)

Scoring:  Everyone gets 1 point for each correct guess

The winner gets the dog.

2 thoughts on “Fun Family Game #3 – Who is Telling the Truth?

  1. I was told about this website by my daughter who lives in MI, it is awesome. I was and am looking for ideas for our Christmas get together (family) and needed something that would fit all ages. Thanks so much for all the effort you go to, so us dummy’s have a resource. Will log on quite often. Also loved your chocolate gummy bear idea for neighbors.

  2. Every year the age group of our cousins (9-13 girls, 9-13 boys, 4-7 boys, all the teenagers) go to a family’s house to spend 2-3 nights together I am going tomorrow (we call it cousin camp) and thought this game would be great and really fun! Thanks
