Make inferences and draw conclusions | Colorin Colorado

Observations occur when we see something. On the contrary, inferences are what we learn from experience. Helping your child understand when information is implied, or not stated directly, will allow him to improve his ability to draw conclusions and make inferences. This knowledge will be necessary for all types of school assignments such as reading, science and social studies. Inferential thinking is a complex skill that will develop over time and experience.

Learning to draw conclusions and deductions is a skill that develops over time. Dexterity requires that children gather several pieces of information and is based on good knowledge of words. Help your child develop his or her ability by providing experiences with inferential information, clarifying what is implicit information, and helping your child draw conclusions based on the evidence.
