This powerpoint teaches students to make inferences while reading, by allowing them to "play detective." Using the clues, students can determine character traits, thus, making inferences. Information about the importance of making inferences is provided and students then have another chance to practice with a Shel Siverstein poem.
This is a great lesson to introduce the skill of making inferences and acts as a great springboard for other literature and reading comprehension lessons.
