Students need to understand the difference between fact, opinion and commonplace assertion, so they don't fall into the trap of believing everything they read on the Internet, or hear on television or radio or podcasts. This product was designed to help students differentiate between fact and opinion, and introduce them to the idea of commonplace assertions -- those things that many people believe to be true, but really aren't. With a PowerPoint that guides both teach and students through the activities, activities that allow movement, cooperative learning opportunities, and interactive notebook suggestions, it's a two day lesson that is both engaging and valuable.
This product contains the following items:
PowerPoint for students that guides the lesson and activities over the two days.
Card sorting Activity
Give One/Get One activity
Three leveled readings about Pocohontas (app. 350, 650, 1050 L)
