PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Trunafish and Baloney” is an original and creative way for teachers and/or librarians to teach students how to recognize the difference between fiction and non-fiction. I have had fifth graders who still remember this lesson from their Kindergarten year, and they’ll never forget it! (It can also be adapted to teach fact and opinion.)

Students will gather around a "picnic" and put together "trunafish" or baloney sandwiches (all printables included), depending on whether or not the book (glued on the "bread") is FICTION (baloney) or NON-FICTION (trunafish)! You and your students will really love this lesson!

Lesson plan includes:
- Materials Needed
- Detailed Instructions
- Photo Examples
- Printables (bread, "trunafish", baloney, lettuce leaves, tomatoes, and labels)

For grades K (second semester) - 3
