Making Inferences Task Cards and Anchor Charts Activities:

This engaging and rigorous inferencing product was created for 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade students.

This product includes:

  • 34 inferencing task cards
  • Two instructional pages with examples and explanations of making inferences (anchor charts)
  • Answer sheets
  • Answer keys

Half of the task cards contain passages, and the other half includes keyword lists that require students to make inferences about the event or place (as well as add two keywords to the list of inferences). Adding keywords to the list encourages students to use inferencing skills at a deeper level.

Teachers can use this activity in centers, with small groups, during tutoring, or for whole-class instruction.


This product includes a digital option (as well as the no prep printable option). The instructions for utilizing the digital portion appear at the end of the packet.

This file contains 32 pages + a Google digital option.
