LEAP Into Science: Get the Facts

1,460 people like this -

We are surrounded with more and more information every day. How do we know what to believe? It is critically important that students are able to differentiate fact from opinion, distinguish between essential and non-essential information, and make inferences from text. These skills are important for science and reading and can be reinforced in fun ways! By helping students learn the difference between facts, which are statements based on evidence, and inferences or opinions, statements that express judgments or ideas, they will be better able to evaluate what they read, hear, view and write.
