When we get news from our social media feeds, it often only tells us part of the story. Our friends - and the website's algorithms - tend to feed us perspectives we already agree with. Escape the filter bubble and have your ideas challenged! https://youtu.be/mh1dLvGe06Y

Family Tip 4: Discuss Fact vs. Opinion! Play with ideas and decide which are facts and which are opinions. Ask: How tall are you? What's the best food in the world? Do you like dogs? Point out that both fact and opinion show up in the news, but opinion is usually(!) labeled.
