Sorting Sarcasm, Truth, & Lies
Sarcasm is such a tricky thing to teach! Here’s a fun activity to help build sarcasm skills!
Truth is something that you can see or can prove.
Sarcasm is the OPPOSITE of the truth. Usually, ONE word is switched with its opposite to make a sarcastic statement.
- Ice is HOT
- Fire is COLD
- Giraffes are SHORT
Lies switch a true word with a different word, but not quite the opposite.
- Your mom’s name is TRACY (when it’s actually Jenny)
- Your hair is blue (when it’s actually blonde)
- It’s raining (when it’s actually sunny)
Use the cards to have your learner sort statements between the three categories (truth, sarcasm, lie). I added a bonus blank page so you can write examples using the learner’s knowledge and environment.
