This is a great in-class activity to use as you discuss how to find the main idea of an informational text. This is perfect for the first or second day of talking about the topic, and was made with English Language Learners in mind! There are 4 short, simple passages. The first one is completed as an example, the second is to do as a class, the third is to do with a partner, and the fourth is to do independently. Thanks for downloading and don't forget to rate and comment!
