Identifying Critical and Supporting Details in Expository Text

After a brief lecture on the difference between the main idea of a text and the supporting details, class members read a short passage and identify these elements in the passage. For guided practice, individuals repeat the process with a second passage. The resource could be reproduced and given to class members who need extra practice or missed the lesson.

Lesson Planet has been a great site for me because I teach grades K-6 and some of my lessons are not easy to teach. It has made it possible for me to come with lessons students can understand. This is one of my favorite resources to pull and review from. Thank you Lesson Planet!
