Item description

This highly engaging activity will teach your students how to distinguish between fact and opinion by becoming observant text detectives! They will read each story along with the witness statements to determine which clues are facts and which are just opinions.

Next, students record the clues in their detective notebook and compare them to the suspect cards to determine who the culprit is. If students successfully weed out the opinions, the case will be solved!


  • 8 different cases to solve
  • Top Secret Case Files
  • Storylines
  • Witness Statements
  • Suspect Cards
  • Detective’s Notebook
  • Fact Finder Detective Badges

Part two of this resource is a sorting task for your reading centers. Students read each statement and then sort by whether it is fact or opinion.
