The Perfect Icebreaker Activity - Call My Bluff

Here's a great icebreaker activity for the start of a new school year, to get your students introducing themselves and talking in small groups.

To download ‘Call My Bluff’ click here.

The idea is simple: students write two true statements and one lie (bluff) about themselves on the cards provided. Then in groups, students take turns to read out the statements while the group has to work out which one is the lie.

Hint: Tell your students to think creatively. For example, I am 4ft 6, 5ft 6 and 6ft 6, doesn’t make a very engaging opening conversation with your group!

Once every student in the group has taken their turn, the group decides on the best ‘bluffer’ (so to speak) who then shares their statements with the class.
