This unit can be used as a center, assessment, or whole group lesson. Download includes 4 passages written on a 2nd or 3rd grade level, 3 themes to choose from for each passage, and a Theme Journal for recording answers.

Easily adaptable for older or advanced students by taking away the multiple choice cards and letting them find their own theme.

I have used the Theme Journal on its own for whole group and guided reading centers to identify the theme of read alouds or guided reading books.
