Overview of slideshow:
•It begins by explaining what inferences are and how to look for clues. There are three guided examples that use animations to help keep the children interested and better understand and remember the concept.
•Next the students use their new skills to find clues and make inferences in an interactive game that quizzes them on making inferences.
•Also included are 3 worksheets-one easy, one medium, and one difficult- so you can meet the needs of all the kids in your class.
I've noticed that younger children tend to perk up a lot more and get excited when there is a PowerPoint rather than just a oral lesson and worksheet. This lesson meets auditory and visual needs.

Note to buyers:
The slides will appear to have overlapping text due to the animations, but when played as a slideshow will look normal. I recommend viewing the slideshow before presenting it to the students to become familiar with the way the buttons and slides are formatted.
