“Roller Coasters” Closer Looking Inferencing Lesson

2nd, 3rd Grade • 1 Lesson Plan

Lesson Plan Description

Teaching students to infer and analyze can be challenging with the written word.  In this “closer looking” lesson based around two photographs containing roller coasters your students will:

  • Engage in collaborative conversations by posing or responding to specific questions based on sentence frames
  • Practice critical analysis skills by looking for details and making  inferences
  • Demonstrate the skill of compare & contrast when looking at 2 photographs
  • There is an optional independent compare and contrast exit slip at the end of the lesson to gauge students understanding.
