Creative Inference Activities

Jennifer (Also know as The Teacher Next Door) Shared a fun inference idea on YTA's Best Teaching Tips and Tools board that I thought were clever and simple- a great combination! 

The first were a few pictures that your students could look at and then draw inferences from:

Why is his tongue blue?


Why is he carrying a Santa suit?

What I love about these images is that there is an element of fun in both pictures that will grab the attention of each student during your lesson. I also love that you could really use any picture that tells a story...wouldn't every kid in your room REALLY be engaged if you used class pictures that you'd snapped the previous week? Fun!

Another creative inference activity came from Mrs. Gilchrist at Amazing Teacher. She had her kids find one item to put in a paper bag, write clues about it, and hung them in the room for an instant inference game!


This might also make a great 'get to know you' activity for the beginning of the year. Students could reveal what is in each bag and how that item represents something special about them.

This is just one idea that was pinned to the BEST Teaching Tips & Tools board on my Pinterest page. This is a awesome board full of TONS of creative ideas pinned by other teachers. Check it out:
