This product pairs perfectly with my Main Idea Weather Match-Up!
Main Idea Weather Match-Up

What a better way to practice Main Idea than with a topic students love! Weather!

These four passages are a great way for students to gain exposure to locating the main idea and supporting details in a nonfiction text.

Titles include:
-Severe Weather
-Flash Flooding
-The Heat is On (heat waves)
-High in the Sky (clouds)

This product can serve as a scaffolded way to help students move from finding stated main ideas to a more difficult implied main idea text.

**The first three passages of this product include stated main ideas. The final passage has an implied main idea. **

Each passage is a full page. This product also includes an accompanying main idea graphic organizer and worksheet for each passage. Mini passages included on each worksheet!
