This activity can be used in many ways such as: centers, daily work, homework, for practice, assessments, and for exit ticket purposes. It includes five non-fiction passages with a graphic organizer included on the page. The graphic organizer requires students to identify the main idea of each paragraph in the passage. It also requires students to explain using DETAILS from the particular paragraph that support the main idea. This activity was created with the CCSS RI. 3.1, 3.2, AND 3.8 standards in mind. Color coding can be added in as well if identifying evidence from the text is useful in your instruction.
