Our Opinion Writing lesson plan for grades 1-3 teaches students about opinions, the difference between opinion and fact and learn to write a simple opinion paper. Students are asked to use their creativity to write a paragraph about their favorite part of their body. Students are also asked to identify which statements are facts and which are opinions in order to demonstrate their understanding of the difference between the two words.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to write opinion pieces on topics or texts and be able to provide reasons that support the opinion.
