This document contains circle maps filled with pictures, main idea card labels, main idea draw and write paper, and directions for use. The directions include several ways to use these maps in your classroom. For example: After viewing one of the mats, ask the students to generate the main idea. Then, give each student the writing paper and have them illustrate and write about the main idea. Also, there are three sheets of cards if you wish for the student to match the main idea card label to the correct mat. I hope you love this unit as much as I do. Let me know if I can improve it in any way.
