Product Description
Looking for a new way to help your kids identify an author's point and its supporting reasons? Use this fun supporting detail match-up activity!

In this product, you will find anchor charts to help your students visualize this skill. Much like main idea and key details for literature, an author makes a point in a text and needs support. Cows are BIG animals who need lots of support from their legs to help them stay standing! When an author makes a point in an informational text, he/she needs some evidence to support their claim! I provided two different, but similar, versions of the chart for you to choose from.

The remainder of this product is a fun matching game. Have your kids mix up the puzzle pieces (differentiate by adjusting the number of puzzles you give to a student at one time). Students will practice matching an author’s BIG point and his/her supporting reasons.

For example:
Provide partners with 2 sets of cut-up puzzles (6 pieces in all). The partners will work together to make conclusions about which reasons (the smaller pieces) match the BIG points (the larger pieces). The students should have discussions about which puzzle pieces make the most sense and have the same topic as the BIG point.

The final page is a recording sheet. This can be used any way you’d like. It can be an exit slip, an artifact for evidence of their correct completion, or it can be a template for writing their own BIG points with supporting reasons!
