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?

  1. A legend is when someone tells their children, then they tell their children, and so on. Legend is different from fiction and nonfiction is because someone tells one person and that person tells another person. Because Betsy Dowdy may not have existed.

  2. a legend is a story that is passed down orally. fiction is not real. nonfiction is real. a legend is a story that may not be real. henry cot cannons and we know he really existed.

  3. The legend is not proven to be real or fake unlike nonfiction and fiction were we know that its real or fake.
    Because we know that Henry Knox is real and we don't know if Betsy is real.

  4. A legend is doing something that you don't ask to do and you don't stop doing it. Fiction is not real, nonfiction is real, and a legend is maybe real. We know Henry Knox more than Betsy Dowdy because Henry Knox brought cannons to General Washington and he did not stop.

  7. Because there is no proof that Betsy Doughty actually did all that! And Henry Know had like 500 people know he brought cannons when we only know about 2 people that actually saw her do it!
    A legend is a story that is made up and passed threw generations. Nonfiction is diffrent form fiction because one actually happened when the other didn't!

  8. A legend is something that is like something you don't have prove of. It is different because nonfiction is something you have to have a lot of information about. Fiction is not true and this happened. Because that person might have done something more heroic.

  9. 1. A legend is a story getting passed on from grandparents
    2. How fiction is different is fiction is fake a legend is sometimes true and nonfiction is different from a legend is nonfiction is always real
    3. Because we read,we typed what we now about it, and we looked it up to.

  10. A legend is a story that might not existed . Well you don't know if its really so it can't be fiction of non fiction so you cant tell. She might be a legend and people don't pay that much attention on legends.

  11. I think betty didn't give up in her self and only had one goal to tell general Skinner that the redcoats. And nonfiction is real and fiction is fake. They both did a good deed and letting know a general that bad people are coming

  13. A legend is what something that is real or not real.
    nonfiction is real story and a fiction is a story that is made up.
