This packet is for teaching students how to find the main idea and supporting details in a passage. Using the metaphor of an umbrella, students will visualize that the main idea covers the details (the raindrops). In the folder you will find a poster with the umbrella and raindrops, a definition of main idea and supporting details as well as questions to ask students to guide them in finding this information as they read. There is also a graphic organizer where the students can use to fill in the main idea on the umbrella and the supporting details on the raindrops.
