Lesson 1: Students are becoming exposed to the keywords often found in facts and opinions. Students are highlight keywords in sentences and sorting cards based on whether they are facts or opinions.
Lesson 2: Students analyze short texts to try and find examples of facts and opinions within the text. Students use crayons and a key to underline the fact and opinions found.
Lesson 3: Students evaluate the answer given to a fact and opinion question. Students determine if the answer given is correct and incorrect and complete a mystery sentence activity!
Lesson 4: Students will look at a photograph and match it with a given fact or opinion. Students will then write the missing fact or opinion for the picture. This gets students practice writing out facts and opinions about different topics.
Lesson 5: Students get to apply their knowledge of fact and opinion by playing a whole class and partner game of tug of war. Students will be writing out facts and opinions about a specific topic and whichever side is the strongest (has the most) wins!
