PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Change the hard task of making inferences into a game! The students will have to read the passages and use higher order thinking skills to infer who are the community helpers in the "mystery" pictures!

The "Who is in the Mystery Picture?" product is a great way to introduce some very important skills in reading: infer information that is not explicitly stated in the text and identify the clues in the text that helped you make the inference.
The product contains 50 pages that help you teach this important reading comprehension skill.

Included:
* 10 inference texts
*10 "mystery" pictures featuring community workers: astronaut, farmer, dentist, vet, police officer, mail carrier, firefighter, teacher, nurse, highway patrol
* graphing organizers to organize the text clues
Follow up activities:
* True/False charts
*30 True/False statements to sort on the charts
*compare and contrast on a Venn diagram/writing prompts/activities that require higher order thinking skills
*suggested sequence of lesson

This lesson is my students' favorite.They ask for it over and over.They are curious to find out who is in the "mystery" picture. It develops their critical thinking in a fun and engaging way.It's great to use with your ELL students as well because the language of the text is simple,but there are also lots of vocabulary words that can be taught. Also each lesson has a follow up activity to reinforce concepts.

This activity can be done whole group, small group with scaffolding, or as a cooperative literacy center.
The skills required in this product correlate to the following Common Core standard:
RL.1 -ask and answer questions about key details in a text

Have fun teaching inferences !
