Description

With this activity, students will develop the skill of distinguishing when a statement is an opinion, fact, or untruth. This is a critical skill for students to develop since they get bombarded everyday with information that is not always correct, although it is presented as the truth. It is especially pertinent when our students become voters. Students will also learn some interesting facts and myths they may not be aware of.

Students in the upper elementary to 8th grade levels will do best with these cards. They are primarily at a 5th to 7th grade reading level. A slide/page of terms is included in the packet for review before assigning the packet.

The cards can be used for small independent group activities or they can be projected up on a screen for a class quiz activity. Student’s can compete against each other to earn points for correct answers.

Cards can also be assigned using The TPT Easel Activity. This platform makes them available for digital and distant learning. It provides teachers and students multiple options such as blocking answers with text box. Students can write or type answers into that area. Unblocked sheets with the answers can be provided later.

The packet consists of 10 pages of 3 inch by 3 inch cards for a total of 30 cards. There is a true statement, untrue statement, and opinion statement on each card for students to identify. After students read the sentences on one side and identify them, they can be flipped to see the corresponding answers.
