     Making Inferences
            And
    Drawing Conclusions!!
                Riddle 5
He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring’d with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.
               Riddle 6
This thing all things devours;
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.
                  Riddle 7
Upon four legs it walks at dawn,
But two of them, by noon, are gone,
And when the sun is in the west,
It finds that then three legs are best.
                 Riddle 8
I kiss the earth and touch the sky,
Yet neither lips nor hands have I.
I harm no creature, great or small,
Unless, of course, I chance to fall.
I am so strong I’ll never tire,
But fear I termite, axe, and fire.
 The case of the Missing Bodies
When the policeman opened the door of the house, he knew exactly
   what had happened. The bodies were gone, but there was still lots
   of evidence. On the couch the killer sat looking at the policeman.
   The killer did not seem afraid.
The policeman frowned. He knew the killer was guilty, but he did not
   draw his gun. Instead, he walked to the couch and sat down next to
   the killer. Then he picked the killer up, place him on his lap, and
   scratched his ears. The policeman looked at the broken aquarium
   and the big wet place on the floor. He shook his head.
“Felix,” he said to his cat, “What am I ever going to do with you?”
Did this story have you fooled? Which sentence helped you figure out
   what really happened? Oh, yes, and just what were those missing
   bodies?
            A Nutty Question
A squirrel is on the trunk of a tree. You are
  standing on the other side of the tree. You
  cannot see the squirrel. You are not even sure a
  squirrel is there.
Slowly, you walk around the tree. The squirrel
  does not want you to see it. It moves around the
  trunk so that the trunk is always in between. In a
  minute you come back to where you started.
  You still have not seen the squirrel
Have you walked around the squirrel?
             Frog on a Log
A frog is sitting on the end of a log. It jumps
  exactly half way across. It then jumps
  again, this time traveling half the
  remaining distance. It keeps jumping in
  this way, each time going just half the
  distance to the other end of the log.

Will the frog ever get to the other end of the
 log?
