This product is a companion exercise for the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Journeys 5 selection "Cougars", lesson 2.10. Two versions of the activity are included. In one students assemble 3 puzzles to match main ideas with supporting details. In the second version, students write in missing details or main ideas to complete the puzzles. Both versions have a bonus puzzle to be completed with student generated ideas.
Version two is text dependent, and students must find evidence in the section. This is a skill directly asked for in the Smarter Balance ELA test.
These exercises can be used as instruction, practice, or as formative assessment.
