Worksheet Overview

Have a look at the picture below:

 

woman with a cold

 

How might this woman be feeling?

 

You will have used clues in the picture to help you with your answers.

 

She is blowing her nose.

She is wrapped in a blanket.

 

These are clues that she has a cold and isn't feeling very well.

 

Using clues in a picture or text to help answer a question is called inference.

 

Read the sentence below:

 

Jacob rubbed his eyes, stretched and poured the cereal into his bowl.

 

cereal

 

What time of day is it in this sentence?

 

We can use the clues in this sentence to help us.

 

People rub their eyes when they are tired or just waking up and they mainly eat cereal for breakfast.

 

We can take a clever guess that it is morning and Jacob has just woken up.

 

In this activity, we will have a go at answering inference questions. We can use clues in the texts to help us.

 

Are you ready to use your detecting skills?
