How and why has the weather changed so far in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe? How can you tell?

In the first 11 chapters of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, you have met four children who have entered the land of Narnia through a wardrobe.

These children have become part of a struggle between good and evil in response to a prophecy or prediction. Tell your parent or teacher about the prophecy and how the children are involved in it.

As you read Chapters 12 and 13, you will look for clues to help you make inferences based on the text. In previous lessons in this series, you began to make some inferences. To review what an inference is and how to make an inference, watch the video, Learn how to make Inferences by mistersato411. As you watch the video, jot down three things you will want to remember to help you make an inference as you read:


Review with your parent or teacher three things you wrote down to help you make inferences when you read.

In the video, you learned that you use clues from what you read and what you already know to draw a conclusion. The author does not always tell the audience everything, and expects the reader to draw his or her own conclusions when reading.

Move on to the Got It? section to read the next two chapters and practice making your own inferences.
