Students need practice drawing conclusions regardless of the subject matter being studied. One way to give them this practice is by playing games and involving them in activities. Have fun with some of these games and activities in your classroom.

Drawing Conclusions Games & Activities

Drawing conclusions is an important skill. It's important for the way we interpret everything we see around us. It's important for looking at data in science, but it's also important as a skill in reading comprehension. Like any skill, students need consistent practice. Games and activities are a great way of providing that practice in an enjoyable way. Check out these possibilities.

Mystery Bags

The basic idea of drawing conclusions is that we can use clues available to us to make statements that we haven't verified directly with our own eyes. To help students understand how this works, we can introduce the topic through mystery bags. These are bags that contain random, unusually shaped items. Create 10 or 15 such bags and number them. Hand them around the class, and have students try to figure out what's in each bag using senses other than sight.
