Description

Students love these main idea and supporting details reading passages! Our end of the year activities include ocean themed summer reading passages with comprehension questions.

Finding the main idea and supporting details has never been easier. Using our main idea graphic organizer to color code nonfiction passages gives students multiple opportunities to practice recognizing text organization. When students can see the organization of a written paragraph, they can more easily identify the main idea.

Answer keys are included.
