Description

These main idea and supporting details passage worksheets are based on our Hip Hop and rap music, history song and includes multiple-choice questions, extension activities, and graphic organizers.

Students will listen to the song then use the song's lyrics as a reading passage to find the main idea and supporting details for selected sections of the lyrics.

This activity is:

- no prep,

- super simple and easy to use,

- with a high-interest reading passage based on a rap song!

The song for this activity explores how two founding fathers and a mother of Hip Hop contributed to the urban art, and how it developed into a unified sound.

Listen to the song with subtitles here! (Click here if you have trouble viewing the video.)

This activity includes:

- the song lyrics for use as a reading passage

- 1 main idea and supporting details, graphic organizer writing activity with 3 sections

- 6 multiple-choice, identify the main idea questions with the answer key

- 3 multiple-choice, identify the supporting details questions with the answer key

- 1 "Main Idea on Beast Mode!" challenge activity where students will identify the main idea of the entire song using their main idea and supporting details graphic organizer

- 3 extension "Beast Mode!" activities where students are challenged to:

  • create a dance for the song lyrics
  • illustrate the lyrics through art
  • or dramatize the song by acting out the lyrics.

This activity also includes a pre-made Easel activity for digital use!

- Complete the graphic organizer on page 1 together as a class for Verse 1A. Ask students for supporting details to complete the graphic organizer. Brainstorm together as a class to summarize the main idea as one sentence based on the chosen supporting details.

- Play the remainder of the song and have students complete the remaining graphic organizer activities. Review student answers as a class when students are finished.

- Have students complete the remaining activities listed above independently. Review as needed or refer students to the instructions on page 1 for help.
