The Look, Listen & Infer Fun Deck helps students determine the “true” meanings of messages and can improve critical thinking, auditory comprehension, and inference.
Many times, people do not communicate a complete message. They assume their listeners are also interpreting important visual information. This 56-card illustrated Fun Deck teaches students to infer the meaning of a message by listening to a statement or question and looking at the picture for important visual cues.
One side of the card shows a colourful illustration of the scene. The other side presents the scene and asks, “What should you do next?” followed by three possible answer choices. This side also has a small version of the illustration.
Includes game ideas, all in a sturdy tin. Cards are 7.6 cm x 12.6 cm.
Have players sit in a circle, and place the shuffled cards face down in the middle. Players choose a card, reads the situation and answer choices, and shows the picture to the other players.
