Inferencing

Making sense of what we see, hear and read

Action!

We are going to work through a series of activities on Inferencing. In groups of 4 or 5 you will visit the different centers to complete an inferencing task. When completing the follow-up responses, ensure that you include all your group member's names!

Activity 1: Reading between the lines with Comic Strips

Search for a comic by Jim Davis, Bill Watterson or Gary Larson


Post it to the Google Document here and explain why it is funny
