PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Opinion Writing: Perfect for the fall season! With this packet, students will understand the difference between fact and opinion. They will listen to, or read, two different spider books, participate in discussion, and complete a graphic organizer of facts learned about spiders. Students will then complete a spider craftivity on which they will write facts they learned. This packet offers two different options for this activity so you can differentiate. Students also compare and contrast the presentation of the two books. Three different options are offered in this packet for comparing and contrasting. Students discuss the difference between fact and opinion and participate in a sorting activity to gain an understanding of the difference between the two.
