“Bank Account Saga” is a story that is told entirely through bank statement. It makes for an excellent lesson in inference!
Students not only need to infer what is being purchased with these bank statements but they also need to infer what story is being told JUST through the checks!
I used to have all my students complete my "Ordeal By Cheque" activity, but my lower level kids had a hard time with it. I decided to write my own modern version for my lower level kids to differentiate!
Students can either write a narrative story about the bank statements, OR have them turn the bank statements into tweets!
This product includes all of the materials I use to teach this activity (both narrative and tweet version) including a little more detailed explanation of how I teach it.
