Product Description
Step 1: Students need to become familiar with the difference between fact and opinion. There are 3 activities included where students read the statement card and determine if it is a fact or opinion. The students should separate the cards into piles (you may wont to laminate for extended use). There are follow-up worksheets for students to record their answers in case they are working independently and you need to verify the work.

Step 2: Next, students are given an opinion with a set of facts. They need to determine which of the facts will support that opinion. Afterwards they can record the results so that they can start to see the format for an opinion paragraph. Also, they are asked to choose a fact that does not support the opinion and explain why it wouldn’t work. There are 3 different sets for this activity. Cut apart the sentence strips and then have students complete in small groups or individually.

Step 3: Students are given a set of facts and they need to come up with an opinion based on those facts. They will then write a paragraph using the included organizer.

Step 4: Graphic organizers are included for students to collect facts and write an opinion paragraph. **Also included are a list of transition words.
