Introduce students to the INFERENCE process with this fun and engaging activity!
SYNOPSIS: You [the teacher] have new neighbors and want to be friendly, however every time you go over there to meet them – they are always gone. In an effort to get to know them, you grabbed a bag of their trash. You want to learn more about them so you are going to use the clues from their garbage.
