This interactive power point will help your students understand the concept of main idea and supporting details.
The first slides are devoted to explaining what main ideas and details are and then there are short passages for students to identify the main idea. The students have to read the passage and then select the main idea from four different choices. If they are right they get congratulated, if not, they are redirected to the slide to try again.
This is one of my best sellers and there is a link to an online game to further practice main idea.
