In December Ms. Scharich’s Park Place School Title I third through sixth grade students did a mini unit to review Fact and Opinion. The students focused on sweet things like candy and chocolate. Thus the title, Sweet Facts and Opinions.
Reviewing Facts and Opinions
Ms. Scharich reviewed with students the differences between facts and opinions.
Next, each student had to find facts and opinions about a variety of sweet candies.
Chocolate: Fact or Opinion
The children also read about the history of chocolate, identifying facts and opinions about chocolate.
Maple Syrup: Fact or Opinion
Additionally, they found facts and opinions within a nonfiction text about Maple Sugar Trees.
Then they also created their own candies to show they could identify fact and opinion.
In summary, students had a rewarding time practicing skills with facts and opinions.
