UPDATED: Main idea passages to find the main idea and details, and a writing activity to go with the interactive activity!!
I created this activity to introduce the importance of the details when finding the main idea.
I cut the pictures out and put them in bags, the students worked together to figure out what the details were trying to tell them, the main idea. Then they presented to the class by just telling them the pictures and the whole class got a chance at finding the main idea. So much fun and very hands on!
