Ages 6-10

In introducing children to inference, they must be taught to use the information given and add this to the information that is missing. The book starts out with pictures of objects, each with an obvious sequence missing. Finally, questions requiring answers that tell what is missing complete the path to learning this basic skill. In addition, students are encouraged to tell how they came to their conclusions. These 112 reproducible activities progress to accommodate younger as well as older students.
