This mini lesson introduces the upper-elementary student to the concept of facts v. opinions.
Here's what you'll find in this mini lesson:
* Page-sized poster with the vocabulary terms verify, reliable, and expert
* A two-page handout explaining what facts and opinions are, how to distinguish between the two, and how to verify a fact.
* Three practice pages (two with answer keys). Students will have a chance to identify facts and opinions, explain how to verify a fact, and write their own facts and opinions.
