Library Bluff Game

Here's a game I used with our tenth graders, Library Bluff: Is it a Fact or a Bluff?

The 10s were very competitive. I had fun listening to their justification and reasoning, arguments and counter arguments. The game required them to think through on their answers. There were a few students who were winging it. Those who frequent the library were able to answer the questions and provide reasons and arguments that were better phrased.

What made the game educational was the "bluffing" part. I had to provide substantial information for each fact and correct the bluff. In a way, students reviewed basic library knowledge and new information was added to their knowledge on citations, information sources and research.
