Inference Comics

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 6 pages | Grades: 2 - 6

A set of 5 comic strips to use when teaching your students how to infer information from everyday situations.

Inferring is a valuable skill for students to apply when engaging with and responding to texts.

This activity provides 5 six-cell comic scenarios for teaching inferences, with description areas for the students to write in. The students must decide how each comic will finish by drawing and describing the final cell. A description page is also included within the download.

Use this teaching resource as a guided reading activity when teaching a small group how to make inferences as one of their reading comprehension strategies, or project on a whiteboard and work on the activity together as a class.

Inferring Comic Strip Activity Tips and Ideas

  • If you’d like to save paper and printer ink, you could project a single page of the resource for the whole class to see while they draw and write their answers in a book.
  • Provide students with this Blank Comic Strip Template so they can infer both an answer to the incomplete comic and predict what happens next.
  • Upload the PDF to an app like Seesaw for students to access the full color of the illustrations and draw/write their answers into the app.

    I think that some directions and even maybe a guide or answer key would be of assistance with this worksheet.

      Hi Laura! Thank you for the suggestion. We have created a one-page guide for this activity that includes directions on how to use it. It is now available with the download. We are unable to provide an answer key however, because student answers will vary due to student knowledge and experiences. We hope that the guide will help make this activity more clear to those using it. Please let us know if we can assist you in any other way.
