Product Description
*** MY BEST SELLER!! *** Here's a hands-on, creative way to practice identifying the main idea and detail sentences! This is an engaging activity where your students match 3 details to the main idea. It also makes a creative bulletin board or school hallway display! It can also be used as a novel entry in an interactive notebook!

All of the main idea cones are related to ice cream topics. These are the main ideas:
Three ice cream flavors are clearly America's favorites.
The amount of milkfat determines how an ice cream is labeled.
Ice cream can cause a sensation known as "brain freeze".
There are some unusual flavors of ice cream.
Citizens of America love their ice cream!
You can eat ice cream in various ways.

Each main idea sentence has three supporting details that the students must find and stack on their cone.

There is also an matching interactive notebook entry included in this product. Two ice cream cones can be glued into students' reading notebooks for future student reference.

The document includes student-friendly directions that can be projected for students to refer to throughout the work time! An answer key is also included.
