Main idea is a challenging skill for students. These nonfiction ocean themed passages will help students understand how to find the main idea. These passages will also help them to find supporting details.
There are 10 main idea passages with two formats. One format allows the students to come up with the main idea. The other format has three multiple choice answers where the student will choose the main idea. Both formats have a space for students to write two supporting details.
***You will also get access to an interactive digital version of these cards on Boom Learning℠! Play them on SmartBoards, computers, and tablets. There is a free preview for you to try them yourself. The Boom cards consist of only the passage and the multiple choice questions to find the main idea.
You can use these passages in small groups, as homework, as morning work, or as independent work.
