Inferencing: Brushes and Hedgehogs

WE ARE LEARNING ABOUT INFERENCING. Inferencing means working out what is going on in a text. ******************************************************** To infer, we: (1) READ the text for clues (TEXT EVIDENCE). (2) THINK about what else we know that might help us work out what's happening (BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE). (3) USE the text evidence and our background knowledge to work out what is happening (INFERENCING). ******************************************************** Do the attached task. Use your inferencing skills to work out what's happening and answer the questions.
