In reading, students have been working on making inferences (The Power to Inference). Today, students listened to the story 7 Blind Mice. Students listened for clues to help them determine what animal the mice were describing. The clues were that the animal was:
-as sturdy as a pillar
-supple as a snake
-wide as acliff
-sharp as a spear
-breezy as a fan
-stringy as a rope

Students guessed a variety of creatures:
-large rat
-giant fish
-other mice

Finally, students heard the story with the pictures and it was revealed that the animal was an elephant!
