Is It a Fact or an Opinion? - Worksheet

PDF | 2 pages|Grades: 3 - 4

A worksheet to practise identifying facts and opinions.

Use this worksheet when teaching students the difference between facts and opinions.

Students read a set of sentences and colour the facts blue and the opinions red.

This resource can either be used as independent practice after a lesson or as a whole-class activity in the middle of a lesson. Simply project the worksheet on the interactive whiteboard and work through the questions together.

As an extension activity, why not have your students create their own fact and opinion grid and give it to a partner to colour in?

An answer sheet is included.
