This resource includes some supplemental resources to teach main idea of passages (versus single, isolated paragraphs).
Click here to check out my Reading Units Bundle for 4th and 5th Grade that includes this resource and SEVEN other resources.
This resource includes four complete passages. The students will be required to identify the main idea of the individual paragraphs that make up the passages. There is also a supplemental handout for each passage that requires the students to determine which paragraph would be best supported by a given detail.
Here is a breakdown of the resources in this file:
1. 9 Main Idea Posters (in color and black and white)
2. 4 Passages with the following topics: Female Explorers, Extinct and Endangered Animals, Ocean Animal Adaptations, and Biomes. Each passage includes a supplemental supporting details handout (and interactive template format) and a main idea graphic organizer.
3. Generic Printables that can be used with any text.
