This basic reading lesson regarding summarizing main ideas is part of a thematic unit about the environment, yet may be used separately, and is most appropriate for second through sixth grade students with minimal modification needed, if any at all, but could be adjusted for many other grades. The lesson targets one principal objective: students will be able to effectively summarize the main idea of a text and give supporting examples to explain it. The lesson reflects gradual release and focuses on interactive activities that directly involve students in their learning.
