This packet has 30 printable handouts to help your students understand the difference between facts and opinions using wildlife photos (that I took with my own camera): mourning dove, hare, squirrel, blue jay, lizard, honeybee, katydid, coyote, snail, caterpillar, pika, dragonfly, deer, frog, honeybee, mallard, flower, butterfly, lynx spider, yellow jacket, feather, fly, garter snake, moth, tarantula, mountain goat, toad, dandelion, mallard, cat
In order for students to be able to write a paragraph giving their opinion on a topic, they must be understand the difference between a fact (observable) and an opinion (evaluation of something observed). This packet gives students 30 chances to do just that, so that they will be prepared to write a paragraph about their opinion in later activities (Common Core ELA Standards: W.3.1a-d, W.4.1a-d, and W.5.1a-d).
