Teaching the difference between facts and opinions is such an important comprehension skill for students – actually, for all of us!
 
Just because we saw it on TV or read it on the internet does not make it a fact.


The first step in discerning the difference between facts and opinion is to understand what each is.

 

What is a FACT?

A fact is a true statement that can be proven.
Some Fact Key Words:  dates, numbers, science, historical, non-fiction.

 

What is an OPINION?

An opinion is someone’s idea or feeling about something.  It cannot be proven.
Some Opinion Key Words:  prefer, think, feel, believe, -er words, est words.
