Product Description
My students needed review on context clues, inference, and main idea. This is a great interactive adventure where students can get up and move while they are learning! It became a favorite of my 4th and 5th graders this year!

Set up as an "Around the Room" activity, students receive a bag with 3 clues in it. They must then figure out what the main idea or topic of the cards (what do they have in common). After writing the clues down on their recording sheet, they search the library for the answer to see if their guess is right (for example: ball, brush, bone are the clues....they would look for the "dog" card).

Once students have found the answer, they record it and go back to choose another bag with clues.

As a follow up, there are also paragraphs with main ideas at the end of the packet. Cut these apart, place in a bag, and students must not only put the paragraph in order, but point out the main idea as they are doing so. This works great as an independent activity or as a center. It also can spark discussion on topic sentences in a paragraph/essay!

*Be sure to check out my blog to see more information on how I used this with my students in the library!*
