Product Description
My students have a difficult time distinguishing between the main idea and the topic of a text. For example. the main idea of the article may be about why cats make great pets but my students will say the main idea is cats. This table shows them the difference between a topic and main idea. This can be trimmed and glued into an interactive notebook as well.
