This interactive PowerPoint presentation helps your students understand how to figure out the main idea of a text passage. For now I still have my correlating old lesson plan listed for free in my store (find it here), but I am working on consolidating all the parts of this lesson to make a bundle very soon!
This lesson involves students imagining that there is about to be an alien invasion and they must report this information to the world. My students always love this activity, and I get a kick out of trying to convince them that there really is an alien message interception device hidden beneath the playground basketball courts. :)
