Create Your Own Exercise: "Is it Real?"

Caution: Snopes is an extremely useful site for building this activity, but it also contains many images & topics that are inappropriate for the classroom. I always choose & prepare material ahead of time and never take my students directly to the site. This wiki was created strictly as a resource for educators and not meant to be the teaching tool - Knowclue
Use Snopes with discretion.
