Description

This product contains two passages and a teaching poster that explains the ice cream cone analogy! For each passage, the students have to read the passage and then determine the main idea and three supporting details. They write their statements beside the ice cream cone (main idea) and scoops of ice cream (supporting details).

********This resource is available in two formats:

1. Traditional Printables- Print the PDF and distribute paper copies to your students to complete.

2. Easel Activity- I created a new, colorful version for this digital format. Students can complete this activity on a device. Students read each passage and identify the main idea and supporting details. They type complete sentences into the answer boxes.

I use a triple scoop ice cream cone to teach my students about the main idea. Check out the other products at my store if you are interested in learning more about this analogy.
