This food trivia activity will get them thinking and laughing! This bell ringer can last a full semester.

Each slide states a food “fact” and students decide if it is fact or fiction. The answer and description follow on the next slide. There are 90 questions for students to answer for a full semester. Students follow along on a worksheet and predict the answers. Google version is included (link in pdf).

This presentation can also be used as a fun lesson to engage students and get them talking about food and the amazing facts or to be set up as a game for 2 teams in your class!
