Part of a series of inference scenario worksheets to use when teaching your students how to infer information from images.
Inferring is a valuable skill for students to apply when engaging with and responding to texts.
This worksheet provides an inference scenario and a series of questions which will prompt the students to answer questions about what is going on in the scenario and to decide whether they have used inference or prediction in giving their answers. The questions asked are:
- Who is the leader of this Secret Society? How do you know this?
- What do the different types of hat suggest? Why do you think this?
- Why do you think the symbols on the wall are glowing?
- What is inside the golden cage? Why is it in there?
- Why are the society members holding different types of vegetables?
- What might be in the cave behind the old man? Why do you think this?
- What are the boy and girl near the cage doing? Why are they doing that?
- Why is one of the society members not wearing a hat?
