This quiz contains eleven non-fiction passages. Students read each passage then choose the best main-idea for each. Students have a separate answer sheet where they bubble the answers, which makes for quick and easy grading.
The passages cover the following topics:
-how exercise benefits our health
-cat vision vs. human vision
-calculating a dog's age
-different types of grass
-Sir Walter Raleigh
-how football scoring works
-wild vs. domestic turkeys
Additionally, this could be used as a class teaching tool. Students can highlight or underline supporting details from each passage, and work in small groups to determine the main idea.
