What a Disaster School Journal Level 2 August 2012 Pg. 12 Learning Intention. WALT answer inference questions INFERENCE QUESTIONS - There are questions which are asked about the text, but the answers are not necessarily in the text. How do we then answer those questions? Use your prior knowledge (knowledge that you already know.) Look for clues in the text that may help you. Why does the author say “that’s very dangerous for the seals and the seabirds”. Answer-Because maybe they will get stuck from the oil and might think it’s food and eat it. Why were the children looking forward to spending time with their grandparents? Maybe because they know maybe they have some goodies for them And they can play games. What do you think made the container ship crash? There must be a big wave and hit the container down. Why do you think the people on the beach looked angry? They weren't allowed to go onto the beach because maybe they were angry that they didn’t get to go onto the sand and make sand castles and go swimming. “It showed pictures of dead birds” How do you think the birds died? Because they maybe touched the oil and got stuck to each other. The signs warned the people to be careful. What do you think the people had to be careful of? Or else they might be poisoned. Why do you think the hamburger patties had begun to rot? They got roternd. Because they smashed the container. Why did the teams wear protective gear? Or else they get poisoned. Why did the soldiers pick up every tiny bit of oil they could find? What made it possible that the children could play on the beach again? The soldiers got ordered from the government to pick every bit of oil.
