A set of 12 task cards to practise identifying and writing facts and opinions.
Use this resource when teaching your students to differentiate between facts and opinions.
Print out the task cards on card and cut them out along the dotted lines. Store them in a resealable bag to be used again and again, year after year! Looking for a way to save on paper? Why not slip the student recording sheet inside a write and wipe sleeve so that students can wipe it clean when they have finished!
Ways to Use These Task Cards in Your Classroom
- Use as a whole-class review activity before an upcoming assessment. Give each student a mini whiteboard and a whiteboard marker. Project one of the task cards on the interactive whiteboard and have your students record their answers on their board. When everyone has written down their answer, say “Show Me”. Students flip their boards and this allows you to easily see who needs extra support before the test.
- Use these task cards as a fast finisher activity.
- Why not play a game of “Knock Off” with your class? Students stand up and make a line across the room. Project a task card on the screen. Draw a student’s name to answer. If the student answers the card correctly, they tap the person either to their left or right with their elbow. The person who is tapped must sit down. If the student answers the card incorrectly, they are the one to sit down. Play continues until there is only 1 student standing.
- Use these task cards in your guided reading groups to practise the skill with your students.
A student recording sheet is included in the download.
