Fact and Opinion

What is a Fact and Opinion Table?

The fact is a statement that can be proven and the opinion is a statement that expresses someone’s attitude, belief, or feeling about something. By creating a table that compares and contrasts facts and opinions on a main topic, students can improve their critical thinking and make argumentative conclusions.

How to introduce Fact vs. Opinion in the classroom?

The teacher can begin a lesson by creating an anchor chart with the students and start reading aloud a topic from the subject. Then the assignment will be for the students to guess which is a fact and which opinion. This is a great practical activity to inspire a controversial method and proactivity in the class. The benefit is that the students are focused on the lesson and truly make an impact on their interpretation of them.

Once it is introduced it can become a practical activity and increase engagement.
