Activity Idea - Two Truths and a Lie
Have family (or friends via video chats) each come up with two things about themselves that are true, and one that it is a lie. For example, 'my favorite meal is lasagna' or 'I broke my arm once skatboarding'. Then take turns with one person saying their three statements in any order. The rest of the group can vote for which statement is the lie.
With some time to research, you can also play with other categories, try doing animals, plants, geography or history.

Watch This - Fact vs. Fiction in Movies
It's not just books that sometimes make up things about animals.

Sometimes the fictional things add to the entertainment of the movie, but it's also fun to research and find out the real truth.
