Inference Activity - Making Inferences in Song Lyrics Music Reading Assignments is a creative bundle of activities designed to help your students improve their inferential thinking. Students will examine the lyrics of four songs that require students to use their inference skills. Each of the selected songs tells a story, and students will examine the song lyrics and infer the meaning of the narrative by inferring information. With songs from Taylor Swift, Adele, The Chicks, and Miranda Lambert, your students will be totally hooked into the activity.

Prompting questions are provided to help guide students' inferences of the songs. Students must infer information from the song lyrics based on their background knowledge and demonstrate what evidence led them to make that inference.

What Teachers Are Saying About These Song Lyrics Inference Activities:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️One of my favorite resources found on TPT so far!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I appreciate how this resource uses music, but takes it to a new learning level. It goes beyond merely identifying figurative language and retelling the big ideas, but rather digging deeper and using inferences.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I had to tell you right away that this lesson was such a huge hit that kids were talking about it and couldn't wait to get to class! I played the music clips as we analyzed and discussed the lyrics. Thanks for a great lesson that was extremely engaging, required little to no planning, and no correcting!
