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.
