This week we have used pictures to complete OWIs. The purpose of an OWI is to be able to determine importpart parts of a text and use our inferring skills to gain a greater understanding of what we have read.

Today we are going to complete an OWI on a written text. We are using a page from Endangered Close Up, written by Laura Hendry.

– We will read the text about tigers and make a key observation by determining an important fact.

– We will then ask a thick question about the key observation.

– An inference will then be made to answer the question and evidence will be included to support our inference.
