In state assessments, students are asked to infer what a character is like based on what they say, their gestures, and how they interact with other characters. Many students have difficulty with these inferences. This game teaches students how to analyze and infer while playing a game. The passages mirror the writing techniques that are used by writers in novels and assessments to give students authentic inference practice
(This document was recently updated and has illustrations. A low-graphic, black and white version is also included with this file.)
If you have students that struggle to answer inference questions about characters in stories, try these Inference: Character Playing Cards. As students are playing, they are actually analyzing text and are using inference skills in order to win the game! This is perfect for Common Core. The new assessments will ask students to look for clues in the text that show what a character is like or how they feel.
Students practice these skills and learn how to infer as they race to be the first player to have an empty hand.
