Allow the students to answer. Main: Say: We all draw inferences when we are reading. It is important to be able to draw inferences because many times you need to be able to draw a conclusion based on information that has not been stated.
Drawing an inference is also called reading between the lines and you do it when you are reading and when you are having a conversation with someone. In science texts, you are often given many details and a lot of information. You need to be able to understand that information and draw conclusions about what is being stated.
For example, you might read a text that says that there were pieces of an egg found in a nest. What inference would you make?
You would infer that a bird had hatched out of the egg that was in the nest. In science texts, it is important to understand the difference between an observation and an inference. An observation is something that someone has seen and then written about. Scientists use inferences all of the time, especially when they are learning about something that they cannot actually see or touch, like fossils or outer space.
Now, you are going to read a paragraph about a science topic. While you are reading, pay attention to the details and to any inferences that you might be drawing while you read.
