Main idea and details is one of the toughest concepts for students, but this game will give your class great practice and a better understanding of this skill. Simply cut out the main idea/detail phrases that go with each story and place them in an envelope or bag (with the story). Students must read the story and identify which phrase is the main idea and what details are there to support it. For differentiation you can challenge students who understand this concept to find the main idea and details in the story without using the provided phrases. Answer sheet with key is also provided.
Great test prep and common core aligned!
