Tell me more

While one team reads out statements relating to different scenarios, the other holds up ‘true’ and ‘false’ cards to see whether they think the statement is true or not. Children who answer correctly stay in the game. The team with the most children left standing at the end is the winner.

A discussion at the end gives children a chance to ask any questions that came up during the activity.
