Are you looking for a low prep, creative and engaging, fun-filled activity to teach your students about topic, main idea, and key details?
For this Thanksgiving turkey craftivity, students will close read an informational paragraph about turkeys, looking for sentences that relate and do not relate to the topic and/or main idea. They will cut apart sentence strips, placing those that support the main idea in a Circle Map or directly onto the turkey's feathers. Once this activity is complete, students will complete the turkey craftivivty. The topic, main idea, and key details activity will become a part of the craftivity. The informational passage can be added to students' interactive notebooks.
Don't have time to complete the craftivity? The main idea and key details lesson can be completed independent of the craftivity.
A detailed, step-by-step lesson plan is included for the main idea and key details activity, making this an excellent hands on lesson for an observation or the perfect activity to leave for a substitute.
A flap book for an interactive notebook activity to introduce/reinforce the key terms has also been included. In addition, both colored and black and white posters defining the key terms are included in this download as well.
All patterns and/or templates are included to complete this adorable turkey craftivity as well.
