Connecting a Main Idea and Details

In this main idea and details instructional activity, students learn to connect details and examples in expository paragraphs to the topic sentences. Students read the four sentences and identify them as M for main idea or D for detail. Students then read the next set of sentences and use the graphic organizer to arrange the main idea and details.

Lesson Planet has been nothing short of amazing! Lesson Planet is a part of my weekly lesson planning regimen. I teach my children the importance of collaboration and I think Lesson Planet is an excellent example of how collaboration can help improve ones learning.
