Nowadays students are being asked to "go beyond what the text states" and make an inference based on their background knowledge and what they have just read. This activity asks students to do just that in this activity. Students will analyze a set of receipts and fill out the provided activity sheets, analyzing the "person" behind these receipts based on the items they purchased, where they purchased them, and what time of day they purchased them. This activity really gets the kids thinking about the "because". This activity is best suited for a group activity, working around the room in stations, visiting each set of receipts, but can certainly be used as independent work.
