This activity includes:
1 Main Idea anchor chart.
8 labels to put on mystery bags (could be in brown lunch bags or envelopes).
8 pages with 4 cards that have pictures about a specific theme.
3 pages of worksheets that go along with the lesson.
How to use it: This activity could be completed in a whole group or center setting. I did mine during centers and placed the mystery bags around the room (It’s always good to get the kiddos up and out of their seats). The students had to locate the bags and fill out the graphic organizer with what they thought the theme or main idea of the bag was and what the supporting details are that led them to their decision of what the main idea was.
