Use this set of 24 winter riddle cards with kindergarten- 2nd graders ...
* As a whole class or small group activity, to demonstrate how to integrate the information in the clues
* As a pocket chart center matching activity
* As a small group or literacy center game, with the game board that is included (uses the same vocabulary).

Love these winter riddles for inferring. I used these as follow-up, then put them in a center. I photocopied the bingo board and gave each kid 4 cards and the board. They had to infer the object, then record the clues plus their schema on a recording sheet.
