What makes a legend a legend?

5th graders, what is a legend?  How is it different from a nonfiction or fiction text?  Why do we know more about someone like Henry Knox than Betsy Dowdy?

  2. I think we know more Henry Knox because he was a soldier and because Betsey Doughty was a girl

  3. A legend is something that is most likely true but you can not prove it. It is different from nonfiction and fiction because in nonfiction you know it is true and in fiction you know it is not but legends you do not really know. We also know more about Henry Knox than Betsy Dowdy because Henry most likely had journals and wrote about his adventures

  5. We know more about Henry Knox then Betsy Dowdy because people saw Henry carry the canons and no one saw Betsy. Nonfiction is different from a legend because we know that nonfiction happened and with legends you think there true but you can't sure. A legend is a story that is told but you cant be sure that it is true.

  7. Because a legend is something that people believe in, but don't have proof of it.
    A non fiction story you have proof that it happened. They could have had a journal.

  8. A legend is like a myth like it might be real and why its not fiction or nonfiction it can be over exaggerated a little or alot .

  9. A legend is a story from the past, the truth is accepted but not checked.it is different because it has a story from a long time ago.we know more about henry because it had more in the text and some of it is true.

  10. A legend is something nobody knows if its true. It is different from nonfiction and fiction because nobody knows if its true, some people may believe in it and others may not. We now more about Henry Knox because he may have had a journal and we don't know much about Betsy becauseshe may be a legend.

  12. A legend is something that can be true but nobody knows. It is different than nonfiction and fiction text because the people that made the book didn't witness it and fiction is made up. We learn more about Henry Knox because is story is true and Betsy's is a legend.

  14. In these stories they both take place in the war. In The Ride there is no real facts or proof to cover the story. If someone like her dad or the captian wrote it in a book In Henry it does have proof.
