A graphic organizer to practice writing facts and opinions.
Use this template when learning to differentiate between facts and opinions.
This resource can be used in a few different ways:
- Use it as a whole-class activity by projecting a copy of the graphic organizer on the board. Write a topic and have students generate a fact and an opinion about the topic in their journals or a mini dry-erase board. Then, choose students to come to the board to write their responses.
- Use it as a reading center activity. Students will think of 3 topics they are familiar with and write each one in the topic box. Then, they will write 1 fact and 1 opinion about each topic.
- Use it as an activity with your teacher-led guided reading groups. Using different mentor texts, students will identify a fact and an opinion from the text and write them down. This can be done together as a group, or independently and you check their understanding.
Use the drop-down menu to choose between the PDF or Google slides version.
