Is it Fake or Fact

Give your girls a number of websites, make sure some are legitimate and some are completely fake. Then ask them to see if they can identify the fake ones?

Debate the truth not opinion

Choose a topic that is something girls are passionate about. Then find some websites that take different view points on topic, probably 5 on each side for and against. Then have girls rank the websites based on credibility from most credible to least.  As the girls are doing that, ask them how they are doing keeping their own personal opinion out of the decision of what is most creditable

Can You Lie Without Being Caught

As you explore what the truth is in articles and in media, have your girls try to tell a story about something that is truthful but while telling the story put in some false information. See how many girls can catch the lies. If they think it is a lie have them call out “liar, liar” while girl is sharing story.

Who is your favorite celebrity – FACT CHECK

Even our favorite celebrities lie or share their opinion but come across like its facts. Have the girls pick out someone they like and trust and review a recent article, video or social media post they put out in and evaluate it for facts vs opinions. Or did they just straight lie?
