Kids struggle when inferring because the process involves all this higher level thinking and using the text in a way that they are just not used to. This activity helps kids use textual evidence to build their inferences.
How to: Have kids read the passages. They will choose details to help build their inference and answer the provided questions.
When they are done, they will show their work to their partner and have them check their details and their inferences.
This can also work as a super effective mini-lesson.
