Inference is a tricky skill for many students. It involves seeing more than just the words on the page! Use this 36 slide PowerPoint to give lots of practice in a fun and entertaining way. It's full of great clipart and interesting text that help students get to the heart of the lesson!
Each slide has two questions. The first is asking a specific inference question, the second asks students to justify their answers by going into the text to support their answer. This is particularly helpful on end-of-the-year tests.
