Main Idea and Supporting Details

This worksheet tests young readers ability to identify the main idea, key words, and supporting details from a short provided reading passage. Students begin by reading about animals of the arctic and then move on to answer five multiple choice questions that ask them to categorize sections of the passage as either a main idea or a supporting detail. This worksheet does not give any instruction for improving reading comprehension skills, it is merely a test of all ready existing knowledge. </
