For this activity, students create mini booklets that show their understanding of main ideas and details. This activity reaches the higher DOK (depth of knowledge) levels because students sort details, AND actually create main idea sentences based on those sentences!
Students friendly instructions (with visuals) are provided. The teacher can project this so students can readily refer to directions as they completing the project.
