Worksheet Overview

This activity is all about making predictions.


Predictions are clever guesses about what might happen next in a story.

Prediction questions also ask us to predict what a character might say or think.


Look at the cave below.


a cave


What might be in the cave?


Could it be full of artefacts from thousands of years ago?

Could an animal or monster be hiding inside?


girl with question marks


Read the sentence below:


Zoe shone her torch into the mouth of the cave. It was surprisingly quiet and cold. As she took a few more steps, a giant shadow crossed her path.


Who or what might the shadow belong to?


angry bear


Could it be an angry bear?

Could it be another explorer like Zoe?

Was it her own shadow?


In this activity, we will read a text and make predictions about what might happen next.
