Many students are not familiar with the term "inference" or "to infer". Knowing how to infer is a foundational skill needed for higher-order thinking. This is a great mini lesson to introduce this concept to students. It can also be used as a homework assignment or is for sub plans. This product includes essential questions, inferencing lingo, practice worksheets, and two graphic organizers that can be used with any text of your choice. I hope you and your students enjoy!
