World History To Tell the Truth Plays:
Need a quick fun Friday or day before a vacation activity?
Try one of these role-playing plays I designed to make my students laugh, learn and interact with one another.
Based on the Mark Goodson Production To Tell The Truth Game Show, kids learn about famous people with these fun and informative plays!
Kids don't realize that famous people were once "kids" themselves with the same problems growing up. Socrates, the famous Greek philosopher, was teased by his peers because of his looks....they called him ,"Frog -face"! Michelangelo and his dad didn't see eye to eye and Da Vinci was so interested in learning something new, that he had difficulty sticking with one task until its completion. Through my To Tell the Truth Plays , kids in grades 4-9 can learn that our youth influences our future.
As a 6th grade social studies teacher, my students tell me they look forward to To Tell the Truth Play days and hope your students will also!
Use this clip to see the original game show and how it worked:To Tell the Truth Game Show
When you think of Christmas, probably,the book which has been made into the most movie and television specials is a "Christmas Carol".The book, "The Christmas Carol" was written by British writer,Charles Dickens,one of the most famous writers of all times. Two quotes of Charles Dickens: A day wasted on others is not wasted on one's self. An idea, like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself.
