These 32 short passage drawing conclusions task cards are a great way to practice inference, which can be one of the trickier reading strategies. The multiple choice format makes them ideal for test prep. Students can use these cards individually at a center or they could also test each other in pairs. Another option is to use the cards with the whole class for the game SCOOT. A student answer sheet is included as well as an answer key so students can self-correct. If you want to add an extra challenge, I have also included a "Challenge Card" which asks students to explain their reasoning for each card.
Contents of this set include:
• Directions and Suggestions
• 32 Task Cards
• Challenge Card
• Student Answer Sheets
• Answer Key
