The FACT OR FICTION? Series for children in grades 3 through 6 retells famous stories with the intent of discovering how much of the tale is true and how much might have been made up over time. This series challenges children to think about the research they do and to evaluate an author's point of view. This series correlates well with common core standards for grades 4 and 5. The common core asks students to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts in areas such as science and social studies. Students will be challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they've read. This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life.
