Inference Comics

PDF | 6 pages|Grades: 2 - 6

A set of 5 comic strips to use when teaching your students how to infer information from everyday situations.

Inferring is a valuable skill for students to apply when engaging with and responding to texts.

This activity provides 5 six-cell comic scenarios, with description areas for the students to write in. The students must decide how each comic will finish by drawing and describing the final cell. A description page is also included within the download.

Use this teaching resource as a guided reading activity when teaching a small group how to make inferences as one of their reading comprehension strategies, or project on a whiteboard and work on the activity together as a class.

I think that some directions and even maybe a guide or answer key would be of assistance with this worksheet.

Hi Laura! Thank you for the suggestion. We have created a one-page guide for this activity that includes directions on how to use it. It is now available with the download. We are unable to provide an answer key however, because student answers will vary due to student knowledge and experiences. We hope that the guide will help make this activity more clear to those using it. Please let us know if we can assist you in any other way.
