Two Truths and a Lie: STEM Game and Research Activities
Though I normally review picture books, I couldn't pass up sharing this amazing book with you. Happy Book Birthday! Two Truths and a Lie: It's Alive. Illustrator: Lisa K Weber. Ages: 8 and up. Animals, truths, lies, curiosity, and skepticism. Did you know that there is a fungus that can control the mind of an ant and make it do its bidding?
Did you know that a young girl once saved an entire beach community from a devastating tsunami thanks to something she learned in her fourth-grade geography lesson? Or that there is a person alive today who generates her own magnetic field? Or how about the fact that Benjamin Franklin once challenged the Royal Academy of Brussels to devise a way to make farts smell good? Or that the loudest sound in history was made by the eruption of a volcano in , whose echoing blast circled the planet twice? From a man who gave himself an appendectomy to radio signals from other planets to eagles that have been trained to take out spy drones, the stories in this third installment in the Two Truths and a Lie series will amaze you! Readers with a taste for trivia and the strange-but-true aspects of geography and history will find much to enjoy.
When students hear a story about a startling new discovery, do they ever wonder if it is really true? Walden Pond Press are challenging readers to check the validity of sources in their fun, engaging book. Three non-fiction topics are introduced in each section of the book. Two of those stories are valid scientific topics and one is an invented topic, often the topic of an online hoax. In Round 1, Player 1 reads a statement to Player 2 from a card. In Round 3, players try to outwit each other with the game cards they have created. Each new game in the classroom grows the game deck with new STEM material!
