Fact or Fib

This week we started reading Nonfiction. We spent a lesson this week working on finding the most important facts in a story. Students took notes while they stumbled upon an important idea. Finally, they chose their top 4 to create a fact or fib on a notecard about each fact. Below are a few of the facts the students learned. Our brains were overflowing with knowledge about each topic we read. Great job Readers!
