Product Description
I created this pack to provide students with concise paragraphs to practice finding the main idea. The pages are purposely simple, with minimal borders and decoration to distract the reader's eye. Instead, the pages are packed with text features to help support students understating of the main idea. This pack contains ten science-related articles. The articles are about the following topics:

• Land pollution
• Seashorses
• Hurricanes
• Great White Sharks
• Turtles
• Avalanches
• Snowflakes
• Harp Seals
• Alligators and Crocodiles
• Moon Phases

In order to provide practice identifying main idea, there are 5 articles with explicit main idea and 5 articles with an implied main idea. Each article is only one paragraph.

Students will color code the text features by creating a “key.” Then students will find the main idea of the paragraph.

A second version of each article is also included. These are resized to fit interactive notebooks. Students can cut the page in half and glue the article on the left and questions on the right. In this version students will also find the main idea and color code the text features. However, an additional comprehension question was added about the article.
