Product Description
This activity was created to support a focus on making inferences in the intermediate grades. If you were to do a web search for “inference riddles”, you will see that there are many resources available. One of my favorite ways to teach making an inference is to use riddles to model connecting text to background knowledge or schema. This holiday-themed activity will be a great reinforcement after a lesson using those riddles.

This activity includes a background story on "Santa in Disguise", which includes the assignment to create a disguise for Santa, who needs to save Christmas from an evil impersonator. There is a brainstorm page, a Santa disguise page (one in boxers and one in long johns, in case you have a preference), and a page to create a letter with clues so that students in the class will be able to read their classmates' riddles and infer what Santa's disguise will be BEFORE they see it. An example is included for students who need a visual. I've also included a writing prompt for students to write a story of Santa's undercover adventures.
