Authors dont always come right out and tell you everything in a story. Sometimes you are given clues. Like a detective, you have to use the words and pictures to figure out the story!
Drawing a conclusion while you read or after you read is forming an opinion based on what you already know or on the facts and details in a text. Check an authors conclusions or your own conclusions by asking: Is this the only logical choice? Are the facts accurate?
Read the clues. Click on the correct picture. Lets practice.
