This will be a great activity to use during centers, with small groups or for early finishers.
Each set contains 12 sets of main idea and supporting details cards. Sets 1-6 are fictional information and sets 7-12 contain nonfictional information. (A total of 24 sets.)
Students are required to read each card in a given set and decide which one is the main idea, which are the supporting details, and which one does not belong.
A student recording sheet and an answer key is provided.
Part 1 can be found here.
Part 2 can be found here.
You can find part 3 here:
Main Idea and Supporting Details Sort - Part 3
The discounted bundle for parts 1, 2, and 3 may be found here.
You are welcome to print the activity in color, but it looks great printed with black ink on color cardstock or paper. I print the title page and laminate it. Then I glue it to the front of a large brown envelope. I copy the cards, laminate, cut out, and place each set in a Ziploc bags. I place the Ziploc bag, recording sheets, and laminated answer key in the envelope for storage.
