Main Idea PowerPoint: This is a step-by-step PowerPoint designed to introduce main idea and supporting details. This 49-slide PowerPoint was designed to accompany my best selling "main idea ice cream cone craftivity", so be sure to check out that product, too! I hope that by using this ice cream cone themed PowerPoint, students will build a meaningful connection in their minds that will always help them remember and understand how to identify the main idea and supporting details!
Slides 1- Title
Slides 2-5- Definition of Main Idea
Slides 6-8- Definition of Supporting Details
Slides 9-19- Ice Cream Cone Analogies Explained
Slides 20-22- Review
Slides 23-25- Main Idea and Topic are not the Same! Examples provided.
Slides 26-38- Four Practice Passages (multiple choice format)
What is the main idea of the passage you just read?
Each passage also has a follow up slide identifying the details in each passage.
Slides 39-49- Let's go back to our same four passages, but this time we will identify the best title for the passage.
(Multiple Choice format)
**These questions are often found on standardized tests!**
***A 2-page PowerPoint "Companion" is also included in this file. These pages match what students view on slides 26 - 49. Therefore, students can follow along and record answers on this handout as you progress through the PowerPoint!***
Also, be sure to check out the PREVIEW where you will see many of the slides that appear in the complete PowerPoint! (Please keep in mind that the preview is not animated like the real PowerPoint is.)
(The slides are animated so that the answers to the questions do not appear until after the teacher clicks, indicating the class is ready to see the answer.)
