Authors can use inference to draw their readers deeper into the story. By not stating every single thing that is happening in great detail, the readers use inference to determine what is going on. 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 writings that employ inferences, 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.
