Worksheet Overview

It can be easy to get confused between facts and opinions when you read non-fiction texts.

 

 

A fact is a statement that can be proved.

For example:

Water boils at 100 degrees Celsius.

The French word for 'dog' is 'chien'.

 

You can test these statements by boiling some water and by looking in a French dictionary.

 

An opinion is a person's belief or feeling about something.

For example:

Chelsea is the best football team.

Chocolate is delicious.

 

One person may think that Chelsea is the best but another may not. Some people like chocolate but others don't!

 

In this activity, you can practice deciding whether statements are facts or opinions.
