Product Description
Understanding main idea and supporting details is a difficult concept and one that takes a lot of guided practice in the beginning! During our nonfiction unit, students love learning and reading about bats. We use these activities and our bat learning to recognize the main idea through the supporting details!

Included:
Bat Fact Sort - In guided reading groups, students sort the supporting details by the main idea. The main idea is written in the caves, and the bats are the details. Black/white and color options included!

Recording Main Idea/Details About Bats - Students restate one main idea and 3 details about bats. You can have students use the activity completed in groups or come up with their own!

Independent/Detail Sort - Students sort nine details about bats into the appropriate "cave" (main idea).

Find the Main Idea!- Generic activity for students to use while they independently read a nonfiction text (does not have to be about bats!). Students write three details/facts from the text and think about what they have in common to determine the main idea.


Teaching your young readers to recognize the main idea among the details is tricky, but practice will make significant progress!
