Product Description
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. The file contains two options for classroom use. Use it as a craftivity and it results in a creative bulletin board or school hallway display! Or, use it as a matching game for your literacy center.

Each main idea sentence (written on the cone) has three supporting details (written on the scoops of ice cream) that the students must find and stack on the appropriate cone.

The document includes student-friendly directions (for both the craftivity version and the literacy center version) that can be projected for students to refer to throughout the work time! An answer key is also included.

Be sure to check the PREVIEW! It shows every page that is included.

Third grade teachers: I also have a version for upper elementary students. You might want to take a look at that product and decide which version will best fit the needs of your students. Just click on the link below!
