Fact and Opinion
Old 02-10-2007, 06:34 AM
 

What about a "2 Corners" game? You will hang signs with the words Fact and Opinion in two corners of your room. You write statements with facts and opinions on index cards-enough for each child to have one. Each child reads his/her statement and must decide if it is fact or opinion. Once they decide, they walk to their corner of the room. I allow students to wispher to a neighbor in their corner to check to see if they are in the right spot. We then go over each statement and decide if everyone is in the right corner. I make the students tell me the clue words that helped them figure out why they chose the corner they chose. The kids in my room always like playing and we actually play several rounds; changing up the cards. I usually make enough for 3 games. Hope this helps!
