Fact and Opinion

Our Fact and Opinion lesson plan teaches students the difference between a fact and an opinion and why it is important to be able to identify a fact vs. an opinion. Students practice writing their own facts and opinions as well.

Our Fact and Opinion lesson plan introduce the difference between facts and opinions. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively, with a partner, to complete an activity in which they both answer questions and then decide if those answers are facts or opinions; if they are facts, students are asked to provide evidence and if they are opinions, they are asked to explain why they hold that opinion. Students are also asked to identify if given statements are facts or opinions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define fact and opinion and recognize the difference between facts and opinions.

    Fact or Opinion lesson plan

    My class and myself really liked the fact or opinion lesson. It was very engaging and gave different activities to help students really understand fact or opinion as they are reading different type of texts.
