Product Description
Students often struggle with the concepts of main idea and supporting details. This activity provides 4 main ideas and 3 related details for each main idea. Students determine which 3 details support each main idea/subtopic.
Includes extension activities: One activity asks students to write a paragraph using a main idea and its 3 details. Further extension can be provided by involving the students in writing a paragraph for each of the 4 subtopics and then combining them for an essay on rats. A third task requires the students to do further reading/research to develop an additional paragraph about rats.
