Original Lesson Plan #4599. Fact and Opinion Language, level: 3-5 Posted Sun Apr 29 16:32:46 PDT 2012 by Jefhreen Laskar ( Jefhreen Laskar ). factoropinion Hunter College, Sunnyside, NY Materials Required: Stuffed Animal, 2 worksheets, board Activity Time: about 45 minutes Concepts Taught: Fact and Opinion Jefhreen Laskar Fact or Opinion Lesson Teaching Objective: • Define fact and opinion • Sort sentences into fact or opinion • Generate a fact or opinion when asked Teacher Direction: Students will be seated on the rug. I will ask students, “Can anyone tell us or remember what a fact is?” After hearing student’s answers, I will then write the definition of fact on the board. The definition written will be: Facts: Information that is true. Facts can be proven or checked. I will then give an example of a fact such as: Alley’s shirt is yellow. I will ask the class if that fact is true. I will also explain that facts can be false or true. Then I will try to transition from learning about facts to learning the meaning of an opinion. I will turn the fact Alley’s shirt is yellow into an opinion by saying, “Alley’s yellow shirt is pretty”. I will then write the definition of opinion on the board: Opinion: what someone thinks, feels, ore believes. Guided Instruction: I will have a T-chart on the board. The 2 columns on the T-chart will be labeled Fact and Opinion. I will bring out something tactile such as a stuffed animal and ask the class for a fact about the stuffed animal. I will choose a student to give me a fact. I will write that fact on the chart below the fact column. Then I will ask the class to turn that fact into an opinion. I will choose a student for that answer and write it on the board. I will try to ask at least 12 opinion or fact questions about the stuffed animal so every student has a chance to answer. I will also try to ask the students to give me a true fact about the stuffed animal, and a false fact about the stuffed animal. After we’re done filling in the chart, I will show students 2 worksheets. Independent Practice: Students will return to their seats. They will be provided 2 worksheets. Worksheet # 1: The directions will prompt students to choose a season: winter, spring, summer or fall. Write 2 facts about your season. Then turn the facts into opinions. A sheet will have a chart with 4 boxes. The top 2 boxes will be labeled Fact 1 and Opinion 1. The bottom 2 will be labeled Fact 2 and Opinion 2. There will be a text box between the fact and opinion boxes that say to turn the fact into an opinion. Worksheet # 2: Read each statement. Write an “F” in the box if the statement is a fact. Write an “O” in the box if the statement is an opinion. The worksheet will display a key box that shows students to write “F” for fact and “O” for opinion. There will be 9 sentences for students to determine if it is a fact or opinion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
