Unique, effective, and easy to use,

these four lessons in making inferences contain well-known adages that are derived from centuries of human experiences.

When matching these truisms to their underlying meanings, students practice making inferences from what they read, a difficult skill for some students.

Each of the four lessons contains ten life mottos to be matched their meanings. Answer Keys are included.
