What is the difference between fact and opinion?
A fact is something that we can prove is correct.
Golden Retrievers are a breed of dog.
This is definitely true (fact) and if we research this, everyone will get the same answer.
An opinion contains somebody's thoughts or feelings about something.
Golden Retrievers are the best breed of dog.
This is somebody's opinion as they are sharing their thoughts.
Someone else might think a different breed of dog is better,
Opinions tend to use more adjectives or superlatives like best, worst and smelliest, so keep an eye out for these.
