- Once you've read through the entire lesson as a class, discuss:
- Why is lying so tempting some of the time?
- Can you name someone whom you believe to be very trustworthy? Why are they trustworthy?
- Have you ever exaggerated something? Why?
- Place the following terms on the board.
- Pick students to come up to the board and define one of the terms in their own words.
- After students have written the definitions, allow other students to correct or add to any wrong definitions until there is a class consensus. Have students note down the terms and definitions.
- Have your students take the lesson quiz as an in-class activity. Review all of the questions and answers once everyone has finished.
- Pair the students up.
- Each pair is to come up with a short skit that showcases either:
- Outright lying
- Being honest
- Possibly provide an example of each to give students an idea of what you are looking for. Props and costumes are encouraged

- Been honest
For each scenario, they should explain:
