You will find that everything you need to complete the lesson is on this webpage. There will be two videos to watch, information to read and three interactive activities. The tasks are also on this webpage, but they will also be linked and explained below:

 

Task One – complete the Fact and Opinion Quiz to test your understanding.

 

Task Two – Read the ‘Fact or Opinion’ activity sheet that is attached below. Then choose one of the options below to complete.

Fact or Opinion Task

  1. Option 1: Print the sheet out and underline all the facts in one colour and all the opinions in another colour. Add a key to show which colour is which.

For example: red = fact, blue = opinion

  1. Option 2: Copy out two facts from each passage and two opinions from each passage.

Top tip – If you read the sentence and think that someone might not agree with it then it’s an opinion. Facts are always right.

 

Task Three – Write one paragraph about your favourite animal only using opinions (what you think about the animal). For example: Zebras are the most magical creatures in the animal kingdom.

Then write another paragraph about the same animal but only use facts (what is true about the animal). For example: Zebras have black and white stripes.

Each paragraph should be three to five sentences long.

Top tip – You could look on the CBBC website to find facts about animals. You might find the Newsround website useful too. Use the search box at the top of the page to find relevant content.
