Description

Making inferences and providing support for them can be a HARD skill, especially if you are stuck reading a long, tedious article. :) So, when introducing inference to my ‘BIG’ 5th graders it had to be interactive.

In this hands-on resource, students work in pairs to ‘work backwards’. Given an inference, students are asked to create the story/situation in which that inference could be made. Then, groups partner up and test out their new stories.
