This activity is all about making predictions.
Predictions are clever guesses about what might happen next in a story.
Look at the picture below.
What might happen next?
Did you use clues in the picture to help with your prediction?
Someone is walking down a very icy set of steps.
What often happens when people walk on ice?
We can predict that this person might slip, wobble or fall as they go down this dangerous set of stairs.
Read the extract 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 could the shadow belong to?
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.
