This worksheet is modified from the middle school reading curriculum. It has five scenarios where students are asked to use clues in the sentences to draw an inference or conclusion. They are asked, "What can you infer?" with a field of three answer choices, each with a picture clue.
For alternate ideas, have students use highlighters to highlight key words that help them make an inference.
As an extension: Students can write their own scenario and have the class or a partner make an inference.
This worksheet aligns with Maryland content standard:
Identify and explain what is not directly stated in the text by drawing inferences.
Boardmaker pictures are used to simplify the definitions for students with special needs.
This is excellent for special education students who require an alternate or modified curriculum. It is also an excellent worksheet for general education students in Pre-K through possibly grade 2.
