This packet includes:
page 3: a visual aid or analogy for explaining the topic, main idea and supporting details.
Pages 4-6 contain 12 cookie jar topics. Match them to the cookies (main ideas) on pages 7 & 8 OR give students just the topic card and ask them to come up with their OWN main idea.
Page 9 : 9 images that represent supporting details (make additional copies of this page, then shuffle cards and stack them in a pile). Ask students to provide 3-4 supporting details for each cookie jar/cookie match. The first to collect all 9 ingredients is the winner!
