Teaching main idea and supporting details with a paper bag. (Model first, ie stuff to make brownies. Then students create own in groups or solo providing clues for others to guess their main idea. This can be done with other classmates or present to younger class).
This activity can be used in a center or as individual work at a students desk. It works with Gardners' theory of multiple intelligences well. A student is rolling a die-kinesthetic, working independly or in a center group-intrapersonal/interpersonal, and manipulating a word six times.
