*20 Main Idea Task Cards
To assess the general level of the material within these cards, I input eight of the task cards into the analyzer at Lexile.com.
Mean Sentence Length
Here are the Lexile Ranges for each grade level (25th Percentile to the 75th Percentile).
4 445L to 810L
5 565L to 910L
6 665L to 1000L
7 735L to 1065L
8 805L to 1100L
The level of these cards are about 910, so I would recommend them for any end of the year or advanced fifth graders, sixth graders, and seventh and eighth graders who are struggling with the concept of Main Idea.
