Looking for a fun and easy way to introduce or review the skill of identifying fact and opinion? This is an interactive screencast video that will keep your students engaged with the "follow along" worksheet.
The lesson begins by NOT telling the students what the lesson is about. As the presentation progresses, students will figure out what lesson is being taught. Students also have a worksheet to follow along with the lesson.
A brief description is given about both facts and opinions. There is also a reminder of what common mistakes students make with this skill. Next, students practice with 10 example sentences. At the end of the presentation, students can check their own understanding with the answer key. No grading!
I have included 6th grade in my description, but this would probably only be suitable for a remedial lesson for 6th grade. The lesson is a basic fact/opinion lesson.
If you want a great follow up to this lesson, please look at my Fact and Opinion Cards for Games, Literacy Centers, and More
This set of 32 fact/opinion cards can be used in a variety of ways. I have used these cards in my classroom in several ways.
I would love to hear how this lesson worked for you! Thanks,
