This power point activates students' background knowledge about inferences and has them practice making them with a variety of different mediums (text, video and photograph). Students take notes on what it means to infer and how it differs from predicting. They also work with a partner to answer some inference questions. The paragraphs, animated shorts and photos are engaging and will pique kids' curiosity. This a fun and informative way to present inferences to students in late elementary and middle school. The power point can be edited to suit your needs.
