Hi folks!

Some years ago, I used a fact/inference exercise with students when I was working with them on critical thinking for composition.  I feel the need to reintroduce the distinction to my first-year students this year.  Does anyone have or know where I can find a nifty little exercise that will
impress the students with the difference between the two?

Thanks for all the help and support you so graciously supply.
