There are 3 Groups of cards that students will need to sort into 3 different main ideas. Each group has 6 picture cards in it, so there are 18 cards in all.
Possible Uses - Have the students sort the big cards and then come up with main idea titles for each group of pictures.
Use the titles provided and students will see what fits under each main idea. You can also put them in an envelope and students can use the headings as a self check.
2 cut and sorts:
1. Students will sort the pictures and come up with the main ideas on their own. They will glue the pictures under the correct heading.
2. There is a cut and sort with the pictures already there, and they have to cut and sort the pictures under the correct heading.
I had my kids sort the large cards and then use the cut and sort as a recording sheet. You can use the 2 different cut and sorts to differentiate.
Black and white version included.
