## Fact and Opinion Review

In the real world, the line between fact and opinion can be blurry. It's no wonder, then, that kids might be confused when asked to differentiate between the two. Children are oftentimes inclined to attach their own perspective to factual issues rather than looking for evidence within a text. Help your child learn the difference between statements of fact and opinion by analyzing the language of different phrases. For example: "I like oranges" versus "Oranges are round." Challenge your child with persuasive statements, such as "Oranges are the best fruit" or, "Everyone knows that oranges are better than apples."
