What kind of activities do you do to explain fact vs. fiction? Thanks!
I teach a unit on non-fiction reading (in conjunction with a non-fiction writing unit- all about books) I have a non-fiction section of my class library (quite large) and when I open this section to my kids it changes the whole dynamics of reading workshop. They 'get it'...they understand that facts are information that you can find in many books, that they can research topics, that you can 'prove' facts...

I have my kids write two things about themselves. One is fact and one is fiction. Then as a class we try to decide which is which. The kids had a great time trying to stump eachother!

I used to love that show 'Fact or Fiction'. Maybe you can devise short silly stories to read to the class that are obviously fact or fiction. The class can guess whether the story is fact or fiction. Then they can make up their own fact or fiction stories.
