By playing the game Truth Or Dare, the children will see that both speaking the truth and not speaking the truth have consequences.
What do you like best about school?
Who is your favorite teacher and why?
What do you think is your greatest skill or talent?
What would you do if you found a billfold lying on the floor in a store?
What do you like best about your family?
What is your greatest fear?
When do you find it the hardest to tell the truth?
Also create an equal number of rather silly dares such as:
Flap your arms like a chicken and say, ?Cock-a-doodle-do!? five times.
Hop around the room on one foot.
Tell a tongue twister (such as Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers) at least five times in 10 seconds.
Put your shoes on the wrong feet for the next 10 minutes.
Tell your favorite joke.
Stand up and sing part of "The Star-Spangled Banner."
Wear a funny hat or crazy pair of sunglasses until this silly activity is over.
Was it hard to answer any of the questions truthfully?
Why were there dares or consequences if you chose not to answer the questions truthfully?
What are some reasons that people don't want to tell or to hear the truth?
If there are children in your group with special needs (physical, visual, hearing, language, or behavioral disabilities), adapt the activity accordingly.
