Authors can use an inference to draw their readers deeper into the story. By not stating every single thing that is happening in great detail, the readers are left to determine what is going on their own. This leaves the imagination to the reader. Many readers thrive on that. The following worksheets will help your students learn how to recognize and use inference. Activities include interpreting the events in given passages, using prompts to create original writing sentences, and more. Answer sheets have been included for instructors.
Fun Project Idea: Have your students find examples of inference in their favorite books (or other media) and present them to the class.
