We all know students who have difficulty with inferring. These students struggle in all academic areas. According to Marzano (2010), inferencing is a foundational skill-a prerequisite for higher-order thinking and 21st century skills.
Each of these sheets requires students to look at the picture and then using the information given and their background knowledge to infer, predict, describe, explain, and state an opinion. These activities are great for students in upper elementary, middle-school, and high school who are already thinking about getting a driver's license. Ideal for students who need work on real-life situations. There are 40 activity pages which would work great as a once per week whole classroom activity or for early finishers.
Make one copy of each page for each student. As a large group, small group or individually, students begin by looking at the picture of the road sign. Using information from the road sign and using background knowledge, students answer the five questions. Students develop their abilities to infer, predict, describe, explain and state an opinion by writing answers to questions.
