Resource type Worksheet

File information pdf, 2 pages, 191 KB
Objective: Identify main ideas and details on a paragraph.

The text was taken from a Scholastic Book of reading comprehensions. The graphic organizer on the second page is a personal creation.

This is a good activity to guide and teach students on how to find the main idea and details. The idea is to read and discuss the text with them and, before looking at the graphic organizer, ask them what the text talks about, in general, which are some details, why do they think those are details and not the main idea, etc.
After this, have them complete the graphic organizer independently, and then check the answers with them.
