Mystery Object is a great getting to know you activity for the beginning of the year or anytime. Kids bring an object to school in a mystery bag, guess who brought each item, and tell and write about their object. I use this simple activity to teach main idea (the object) and supporting details (facts about the object).
- take home card to attach to a paper lunch bag
- writing prompt
- bulletin board display ideas, including "Guess Who" title for bulletin
- anchor chart for introducing the concept of main idea and
- "how to" page for teachers
I hope you enjoy this FREEBIE!
