Here is a great winter time activity to work on making inferences. It can be used as a reading comprehension or auditory comprehension activity. This game will ask your student(s) to read/listen to a passage and make an inference about the information. They may be asked to determine who a person is, what they are doing, when the story is taking place, how someone is feeling, and where the story is happening. A few extra inference cards work on identifying the problems and providing solutions and determining what might happen next. All of your inferencing needs in one nice package! This activity can also be cut up into cards and used for a game. To play the game, on your turn, your student will select a card and read/listen to the information. Then, they must answer the question.If you do it correctly, you keep the card. If not, you must put the card back. ( You can choose to give the student the multiple choice options or have them answer without the choices.)
Wild cards are included to make it a little more fun, so watch out for the girl who has been hit by a snowball, because you will lose your turn! If you draw a card with a huge snow fort, you get an extra turn.
The player with the most cards wins! Included in the download is:
* 48 cards with inference questions
* 8 wild cards
* 8 blank cards for your own examples
Enjoy this great inference activity in the middle of winter! Hopefully, it will warm up your classroom!
