I wanted to create some activities with forests as the topic. The result is the following product. They would be excellent if used in conjunction with a social studies or science unit on habitats.
The main idea/detail sort is fairly straight forward. The comprehension section includes 4 short reading selections with questions.

I've included at least one of the following for each passage: map, chart, cause-and-effect, making a prediction, evaluating, and analyzing.
*Main Idea section page for folder
*Student recording page with main ideas
*16 detail cards
*Reading Comprehension section page
*4 passages with following questions
