Spring Training Challenge: Earth Day + 3 Truths… 1 Lie

2016-04-13_13-15-53For this week’s challenge, try this ready to implement instructional strategy, SOS: 3 Truths… 1 Lie (Canadian link) with Expedition Earth Day 2016 from Discovery Education on Friday, April 22.

Did you know we do virtual field trips every month that you can pair with strategies like 3 Truths… 1 Lie? This strategy provides a framework for students to focus on the key takeaway of a particular concept. Students will create three truths and one lie based on what is viewed.

North Carolina STAR Discovery Educator, Dacia Jones has created a series of templates you can use with the SOS. Here’s the one for 3 Truths… 1 Lie. Print this for your class and use it along with the virtual experience or another resource from Discovery Education and the 3 Truths… 1 Lie strategy, and you’ve got a ready-made activity.

Access all of the strategies in the SOS series by logging in to Discovery Education and clicking Professional Development in the toolbar.
