Main Idea

What could you pack for a trip if you don't know the destination? After writing a list of items they would want to bring, fourth graders learn that the "trip" is to the South Pole - revealing the need to understand all available information before moving forward. The lesson goes on to guide them through identifying the main ideas of descriptive and expository paragraphs.
