Instructional Ideas

  • Extend learning for early finishers by having them write their own inferential questions about the picture
  • Project the worksheet and discuss the questions as a class during a lesson on making inferences
  • Differentiate the worksheet by requiring some children to write an explaination for all of their answers, rather than choosing just a single answer to explain
Classroom Considerations

  • For students living in warmer climates, some of these questions may be difficult to answer because they require prior experience with winter weather
  • Printing the worksheet in black and white will make it a harder for children to make inferences about the image
Pros
