Fact or Opinion?

What You Need:

 

What You Do:

  1. Ask your child if they have heard of the word "fact." Then, ask if they've heard of the word "opinion."
  2. Ask what they think each word means, and see if they can provide an example of each.
  3. Give your child the following definition of fact: something that can be proven as true. Then, share the definition of opinion: something that is a judgment and can not be proven.
  4. Give your child an example of a fact. For example, you can say, "Broccoli is green and grows in the ground." Ask your child if this is true. Explain that since this statement is true, we can call it a fact.
  5. Give your child an example of an opinion. For example: "I love broccoli on pizza." Ask your child if this can be proven. Ask, "Is this a judgment?" Explain that since this statement cannot be proven and it is a judgment, we know it's an opinion.
  6. Explain to your child that they will be creating a matching card game with pictures and statements that are either facts or opinions.
  7. Review the instructions for the Matching Game: Fact or Opinion? worksheet, and work with your child to create and play the game.
