Differentiating fact from opinion is a fundamental information literacy skill. But it’s not always easy, especially since we tend to believe the opinions we agree with are facts. The ‘Fact or Opinion’ online game helps students learn and practice identifying statements of fact and statements of opinion.
Students are presented with a series of 5 statements and they must identify whether it is a fact or an opinion.
A short video explains the difference between fact and opinion and reviews different guiding questions and signal words to help distinguish between each.
After learning the tips and tricks, students are given a new round of 10 statements and asked to categorize each one.
