This fun digital board game gives students a chance to practice modals of probability and inferences. The object of the game is to make an inference to guess a single person or thing from a category and set of clues. The inference must be expressed using a modal verb in the sentence. The categories are: sports, occupations, food, famous places, famous people, animals.

See this game and the included specialty script in action! How to Play It Might Be...Digital Board Game video.

For more information about this game, and other inferencing ideas, see the blog post Inferencing: It Might Be...

This digital version of It Might Be... Inferences with Modals comes complete with scripted in "dice" and question selection. To play make a copy for each group of students and give them editing rights. Specific teacher and student direction pages are included. Only the playing pieces are able to be moved on the game board and none of the text is editable.

**This game's scripts require special permission to run. The first time a new copy of the game is opened you must wait 20-30 seconds for the new menu item to load. Then the first time "Game Play" is clicked the script will need to be given permission to run. Step-by-step directions for how to do this (it takes about 30 seconds to do) are provided on the game board with the game play instructions.
