Fiction or Non-Fiction Texts

This picture quiz takes a look at Fiction or Non-Fiction Texts. It asks KS1 children to identify the difference between the two categories and teaches them about some of the genres available. It also tests their comprehension skills and asks them to match titles to either fiction or non-fiction. This will help improve their English and literacy skills.

There are two types of books: fiction and non-fiction. Fiction books are made up and not real, whereas non-fiction books share information that is factual. Test your knowledge on Fact and Fiction books.
