Product Description
Using newspaper headlines can be a simple (fun) way to introduce main idea. Newspaper headlines give a quick snapshot of what the text is all about, and gives the reader a chance to predict what they will be reading in the article. This activity asks students to read the short article, look for repeated words or important details, and then create a headline (the main idea).

This activity can be used a station, a whole group activity, or as a quiz.
