This minilesson is very engaging for students because it uses Calvin and Hobbes comic strips, and the SmartBoard. It can be used for teaching using context clues or inferencing. The file contains comics that have words missing. The students must use the context of the comic to figure out the misssing word. The slide after that will have the original comic to check their work.
*If you do not have a SmartBoard you can still use this with a projector and print out the comics for students to write on.
