Hello fellow instructors. Thank you for downloading this activity. Before using “What’s the Big Idea”, make sure that you have taught the main idea concept in your classroom and within small groups. Teaching the main idea, as simple as it may seem, can prove to be a complex concept for students. That is why we like to provide an image and reference point. Most students can relate to going to the movies or watching a favorite TV show. We hope this activity brought life and fun to your common core teaching!
