Detailed Description and Instructions:

Option #1

As an interactive break from your presentation, have the group stand up. Designate one

side of the room as the FACT side and the other as the MYTH side. Have a Volunteer

stand at each side with a sign. Read the first question/statement then ask the individuals

to go to the MYTH side if they think that statement is a myth or the FACT side if they

think the statement is a fact. Allow 5-10 seconds for each individual to decide.

Then flip to the next slide with the answer and discuss why it’s a fact/myth. Repeat.

Option #2

For a small group, provide each of the question statements to everyone on a card.

Ask them to turn the card over and write why they think it’s a fact or myth. Go around

the room and ask each person to read their statement and explain why they think it’s a

fact/myth. Tell them the correct answer. This can also be done in a small groups of 1-4.
