Product Description
Leave your students in suspense and keep them on the edge of their seats with this inference lesson and activity!

Use slides 1-4 to teach what an inference is, and how we make inferences when reading literature.

Slides 5-7 provide a warm-up activity in which students will make an inference based off of a photograph. They will be asked to use their own background knowledge and evidence from the photo to make an inference.

Slides 8-21 prompt students to make excellent inferences all throughout the story, "The Stranger" by Chris Van Allsburg. Their final assessment is to think like detectives and figure out who the stranger actually is! Check this book out at any public library or find a reading of it on YouTube.

Students will work independently, and then in groups to determine who the stranger actually is. This is a wonderful book that is enjoyable and engaging for all students. The more you can play up the mysteriousness of the stranger, the better! My students loved working as detectives to determine who this odd character actually is. The suspense was killing them by the time I revealed the actual explanation of the stranger!
