This packet is designed to aid you in teaching your students about the basic differences between facts and opinions.
Begin these lessons by decorating your own pair of funky shoes. I got my high heels (pictured above & not included in this packet) from a thrift store for only a couple of dollars. Then I got creative and decorated them with glitter, pompoms, jewels, flowers, a butterfly, and markers. You will need to make your own shoes super creative-- the crazier, the better! For this lesson it’s important to create shoes that will spark some serious conversation, opinions, and interest among your students.
Once your shoes are decorated, wear them to school. You can wear them all day, or just during the fact/opinion lessons. I promise that your students will be very curious about your shoes and they will begin to form their own opinions about them from the very start. (This “attention getter” will set the stage for the rest of the activities in this packet.)

- Funky Shoe Activity (Students get to design their own shoes and write about them)
- 2 Sets of Anchor Charts
