A fact is something that really happened or can be proven.
It is a statement that is always true.
Is this a fact?
How do you know!?!?

Because it isn't always true, some people might not feel the same way!
Is this a fact??

They are statements that are not always true.
Clue words:
14-year-old Brooke Erickson likes to sleep. She has to be at school early on weekdays. On the weekends, she wants to sleep as long as she wants.

Brooke’s mom does not agree. She thinks that Brooke should get up at the same time every day. This way she’ll get used to being up early.
New research says that both Brooke and her mom are right.

Sleeping late means sleeping more than two hours later than a person would normally wake up. Sleeping late on weekends can mess up the body’s sleep/wake cycles. Sleeping late in the mornings makes it harder to fall asleep at night. Staying up later at night makes the body tired. Then it gets even harder to get up the next morning. Wake up and going to bed at the same times every day. This makes it easier for the body to get the rest it needs.

Most teenagers don’t get as much sleep as they need. The average teenager needs 8 to 9 hours of sleep each night. The average teenager only gets 6 to 7 hours of sleep on school nights.
Let's Practice!

Is this an opinion!?
Yes it is!
I know this because I notice the clue words 'I believe' and it isn't always true. There are people who don't always believe that.
Is this an opinion?!
