Using Photos for Inferencing

I created a couple of sheets at the beginning of the year to teach inferencing.  I googled "Inference Photographs" and downloaded many images to my computer.  There are also many photos on Pinterest.  I ordered them as 4x6 prints to save on ink.  The children worked in small groups to make observations, list schema(background knowledge) and then list inferences.  They enjoyed picking out the photos.

  1. This is something my students are having trouble with. Thanks for the great idea.

  2. This is a great way to teach students how to draw conclusions. My students have trouble with inferencing, so I am definitely going to try this. Thanks for sharing! #fcc3_join
